More damage on Monday morning on the motorways

MidiLibre/Scoop, Dec 17

For several weeks, roads in the region have been damaged by the gilets jaunes. Sunday night / Monday morning was no exception, when tolls in Béziers, Hérault and Manosque were badly damaged.

Fires were started, and four people were arrested.

Vinci have announced that their estimate for the damage caused by the gilets jaunes amounts to “several tens of millions of euros” for this month.

“Nearly 250 sites have been hit daily by the actions of protesters,” the spokesperson added. “The deliberate fires destroyed six operating buildings, including the Narbonne regional office, 33 emergency vehicles, 15 interchanges and tolls, to say nothing of the damage to the actual roads.”
