All the latest traffic information in France & around the Channel ports
April would normally be a moderately busy month on French roads with nine problem days forecast by Bison Fute. These are the 3rd, 4th, 11th, 13th, 18th, 19th, 25th & 30th April which are forecast as orange - 'difficile', whilst the 10th is forecast as red - 'tres difficile'. This additional traffic would be around Paris due to Easter holidays traffic but there is little risk of any problems until the 15/04 due to the 'lockdown'.
As you are no doubt aware, France is closed to motorhomes & visitors from other countries until 15/04 at the earliest, the only valid reasons for entry from other European countries & the UK are:
Going home to a main residence – proof of residence required
Essential work in France
People going to France are required to complete a declaration indicating one of the above reasons.
Currently the ferry companies are running limited services for freight & essential travel (as above) only.
The roads in France are pretty much devoid of traffic at the moment as France continues its lockdown with mainly just lorries on the roads as well as the cars of some essential workers, and of course the gendarmes. The campsites are all closed until further notice & motorhome parking is not allowed on the aires although there are still some motorhomes stranded on campsites.
