The traditional route used for HGV transport is the E – 107/ E – 804 to cross over the French border.
We are situated near the A65, (one hour South of Bordeaux) and are conveniently located for the tunnel crossing in Pau.
Due to increasing Ecotaxes, HGV companies are turning to this midway crossing point in the Pyrenees. Then using the R134 into France.
The Someport Tunnel has seen a year on year increase by 6% of HGVS and they now account 26% of traffic using this time saving, money saving little gem.
No more going one direction to St Sebastian, then turning back on yourself in France on the A63 to go South of Bordeaux. Even if you were to take this route; the A63 links to the A65, & we are within easy access of both of these as well as the A64/A62 as well. The A63 puts you on the right side of Bordeaux for quicker access to the French ports to the UK. We are perfectly placed for routes through to Spain & Portugal.
Please see attached maps.
