At 7:15 a.m., Vinci Autoroutes teams were still investigating “to identify the origin of the breakdown”.

This Wednesday morning, the A8 and the A500, between Mandelieu (Alpes-Maritimes) and the Italian border, are affected by a “technical incident on computer systems” which degrades “information feedback”.

The concessionaire had to "reinforce patrols to ensure the safety of users", he says.

And traffic jams are to be expected on the network.

“Consequences on traffic conditions”

"Given the traffic expected this morning, this event could have consequences on traffic conditions on the motorway around the Nice metropolis and Sophia Antipolis", notes Vinci Autoroutes.

No return to normal time has yet been communicated.

"The technical teams have been working continuously since the occurrence of this incident to ensure the return to service of the impacted equipment", assures the operator.
