Does anybody know whether the diversion through Rouen, which started last year, is still in operation?

It was in October thats the last time I passed that way, it will be interesting to know though as we are due to travel down in March.

To tell the truth, Virtdave, I didn't find it all that useful, but that may be because I'm being thick. However, I did try googling 'Rouen diversion' and someone had posted on a forum that the bridge will be closed till mid September 2014. So I guess that answers my question.

I was searching the internet the other day and one report said that the steelwork for the new bridge would be delivered by boat in April, so I doubt if it will be ready for a while yet.

Well that looks like a definite no then. Its ok on the way down but the two times we tried the diversion on the way back to th UK it was a nightmare. Having said that the brother in law found it a doddle but he always does.lol

Apparently the bridge has now reopened. (Don't quote me if I've been misinformed.) :(

Yup. The route is now fully reopened but, if like me, you've found the route along the river bank to be more pleasant, then there's only a few minutes difference.
