About the site

Voie Rapide (translates as "Expressway") was set up in 2017 to provide information on major road networks in France, doing so by way of graphical "strip" maps - something that was not previously availabe for many countries.

The idea of the site was conceived in 2015, following a break after the closure of a dedicated UK website, and uses some of the original mapping files from that site. Voie Rapide took two years to put together before being launched, so there is a chance that some small details may have not yet caught up. However, regular checks are made to ensure details are updated.

In 2018, after a year long "bedding in" period, the site was given a revamp with additional information added. A further refresh was given in 2020 along with a slight refocus, which allowed us to expand the site to include information that would be useful to people intending on driving in France - in effect, becoming a more comprehensive guide to driving and roads in the country.

The site is independently owned and operated, and is done purely as a hobby. We're not affiliated with any government department or other organisation.

And all that is left to say is, thank you for visiting! Whether you are a first time visitor or a regular reader, your support is gratefully received.
