Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The Provence-Côte d'Azur region has expenenced a rapid development of its transport system, and especially the roads and motorways. For example 540 kilomètres of motorway consuminy 6400 hectares, have been opened, it was feared that these would be a major destruction of agricultural land if this trend continued, but these fears seem exaggerated: the economic recession has reduced transport needs, the most necessary and economically profitable motorway sections have been completed, public opinion is aware of the problems and new legal procedures are forecast. The secondary road network, related to the expansion of the built up area wile consume more land than the expansion of major transport axes.
