A map will be shown and by placing the cursor on the road along which you wish to travel a small window will appear stating the condition of the road – in French. You can “test” in several places along your route to see if the road is passable (snow, landslips) or the state of the road surface (slippery, etc.). Road works and accidents are also indicated.

The service is available for all other départements as well, you merely change the number at the end of the web address to the number of the département in question – e.g 66 for Pyrénées-Orientales, 09 for Ariège, and so on.
