The A75: the shortest route between Paris and the Mediterranean Sea

The A75 motorway and the Millau Viaduct offer significant savings in time and money compared to the Rhone Valley:

  • 74 km less than going through Lyon when travelling from Paris to Perpignan
  • A saving of €24.40* for a light vehicle for the A71-A75 compared to the A6-A7-A9 route
  • Smoother traffic flow around Millau: several hours saved during mass departures in the holiday season!

An efficient alternative to the Rhône Valley

The A75 – a.k.a. "La Méridienne" – links Clermont-Ferrand to Béziers in 340 km. The Millau Viaduct is a welcome addition to motorway infrastructure.
Since its opening, the viaduct has reduced time spent in traffic by limiting the number of kilometres to be travelled and relieving the usual traffic jams between Aguessac and Cavalerie.
The A75 motorway is entirely toll-free, except for the Millau viaduct crossing.

An ideal setting

Far from the crowded motorways, the A75 and Millau Viaduct blend perfectly into their surroundings. They pass through the beautiful landscapes of a low mountain range and offer ideal conditions for traffic.

* Estimated average savings on time and tolls. Data from mappy.com (October 2015), calculated without breaks, under normal weather and traffic conditions for a medium-sized light vehicle.

Charges as of 1st February 2016
Toll charges for the Millau Viaduct are updated every year on 1st February, as per the concession contract with the French government. The new rates are calculated using the readjustment formula outlined in the concession contract and take into account the consumer price index, excluding tobacco, for October of the previous year. Thus, every year, new toll charges are proposed by the concessionaire and submitted for approval by the Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy and the Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Control.
