Tunnel de la Croix-Rousse
|Opened||19 April 1952|
It follows the line of the Route nationale 6 and thus links the platforms Rhône rivers to the Saône's ones. It crosses the hill of la Croix-Rousse. The roadway is composed of 2 x 2 routes with no real separation of roadways until the construction of a central wall in 1999. Its use is only for vehicles whose whole weight don't exceed 3,5 tonnes. The tunnel length is 1,782 meters.
The speed is limited to 50 km/h (30 km/h when it rains) and an automatic radar is located at its exit in the direction Lyon - Vaise.
The tunnel length of service leads to frequent scheduled or not closures ; it allows weak maintenance waiting heavier work planned from 2009. These allowed the creation of an additional way for the public transports pedestrians and cyclists and have been opened in 2013.
