New Bypass At Riems Open


Recommended Posts

The new bypass at Riems is open and there is an E. Leclerc very close to it.

The diesel there was about 0. 15€ cheaper than Auto route prices. I was driving solo at the time I called in and it was dark, but from what I could see it was not very caravan friendly, hight barriers on the supermarket car park and a very sharp corner on leaving the filling station.

But if you need enough fuel it would be worth unhitching to fill up.

 

Perhaps someone with a caravan has filled up there and can give more info.

Not my TomTom 1 XL Europe. I get the maps updated every quarter.

That's how I found it, I was looking for a filling station near Reims and found a POI for 'Sodichamp 51500 Champfleury'. Diesel at 1. 285€ as opposed to 1. 46€ on the motorways. And its only a couple of hundred meters ( through a Peage - 0. 40€) from the motorway.

 

The bypass is not on Google Earth or Michelin maps though.

Is the new bypass now part of the toll autoroute?

Yes it is. When heading south you collect a ticket when joining the bypass, if you leave at the junction for E. Leclerc it costs 0. 40€. going north it costs 37. 9€. That is when driving solo, I don't need the caravan in Europe as I have friends and relatives in strategic places :rolleyes:

What is really annoying travelling north is that you pay the toll immediately after Reims and then if you come off at the next exit, as we did, to join the old N44 to Laon, there's another payage in a couple of miles!

It's seems very complicated if wishing to use the N44 going north. Originally, the Reims bypass was free with direct access to the N44 at each end of the free section but the latest layout seems to incorporate a short toll section, going north, to get onto the N44 again. Annoying because the 80c toll fee was charged to my account which then triggered a 2€ monthly usage fee in addition. Luckily, I do not have a minimum spend for the bank charges.
