Le Boulou bypass
Awaited with eager anticipation for the past 18 years by residents and businesses alike, the opening of the Le Boulou bypass has finally been announced for 10th June 2010. Originally started in 2007, and abandoned for a time due to lack of finance, this link road, starting just before the level crossing at Nidolères , direction Perpignan – le Boulou , and coming out at a new roundabout between near Saint Jean Pla de Corts, will pass under the motorway, linking Perpignan and the coast with the vallée du Tech (Céret, Amélie…..) It is expected to relieve some of the congestion that brings le Boulou to a standstill every summer, although it will not solve the problem for traffic heading into Le Perthus,
