Launch of the Paris-Normandy free-flow motorway project

Autoroute A13 Paris Normandie

The Sanef group, in partnership with the State, announces the launch of the Paris-Normandy free-flow motorway (A13-A14).
This project to modernize a major traffic artery between Paris and Caen aims to make traffic more fluid, reduce CO2 emissions and improve the attractiveness of the territories of Île-de-France and Normandy.

A new motorway travel experience

The Paris-Normandy free-flow motorway (A13 and A14) will be the first motorway axis in France entirely transformed into a free-flow toll.

The project, based on free-flow technology, already successfully deployed in many countries around the world, involves deconstructing existing toll gates and replacing them with gantries that will detect the passage of vehicles. Users will then travel at the authorized speed without slowing down or stopping to pay the toll.

The free flow will significantly improve freeway traffic conditions and provide a smoother and easier journey for all road users. This transformation will be a source of time savings (especially during weekends and days of major departures), fuel savings and reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.

The free-flow development of the Paris-Normandy motorway will allow:


million hours of driving saved* each year, i.e. the working time of 1,300 employees.


million liters of fuel saved* each year, equivalent to the annual consumption of 11,000 cars.


tonnes of CO2 saved, i.e. 30,000 return flights from Paris to New York.

“Today the role of concession companies is no longer just to create new infrastructure, but to imagine how to develop our motorways to contribute to the ecological transition and meet the expectations of cleaner mobility. »
