The A50 autoroute is a French motorway connecting Marseille to Toulon.

The first section was opened in 1962 between Marseille and Aubagne. It is 65 km long. The road is toll between Roquefort-la-Bédoule with Sanary-sur-Mer and managed by ESCOTA. This section was the first to trial Télépéage or Télébadge in 1992.

At the end of the section, drivers can choose between entering the city, via the RDn8, or crossing it going through the tunnel de Toulon (Toulon's tunnel) to join the other side of the city and catch the A57 autoroute. This part of the tunnel is closed since this year (2014) for maintenance and improvements, while the second part (Toulon -> Marseille) is now open.[1]
