    Am out in France now - and have heard from others here that it's still closed. Will be setting my satnav to avoid it!

    It was still shut 2 weeks ago. Used the route through Pont de L'arche no problems easier than using the bridge.

    We used the Tancarville Bridge and stayed overnight at Saint-Nicolas-de-la-Talle aire last year. It is on the bluff just above the bridge.

    Came through last Thursday -Mathilde was still closed and Rouen was a nightmare to find a way through - almost took a road where the bridges would have decapitated the van, saw the directional sign for lorries just in time! Scary.

    It's best to head towards Paris then turn off for Pont de L'arche and a clear run up the right hand side of the river.
