Pyrénées-Orientales: the Estagel deviation takes into account the Cycle Route V81

Departement: Pyrénées-Orientales Region: Languedoc-Roussillon
The Estagel deviation, which starts construction in early 2019, aims to reduce the traffic of the RD117 that crosses the village of Estagel with very narrow streets, with more than 7000 vehicles per day and many trucks. Total cost €11 million.
The deviation will cross the Agly and follow the river on the left bank, where the future Véloroute du Pieémont pyrénéen V81 will pass. The Pyrénées-Orientales Department has planned a pedestrian-cycle route in a clean, well-secured site along the bypass.
It will allow the daily movements of the inhabitants, their leisure walks, and the passage of the Véloroute V81 of the Pyrenean Piedmont, which will cross Estagel on the left bank of the Agly.
AF3V applauds this project, and hopes that the Véloroute itself will be quickly converted between Rivesaltes and the Galamus Gorges, on 53km.
