    Please put your thinking caps on and see if you can identify this tunnel?

    It's possibly in or around Beziers in France and has a height limit of 2.6 metres.

    Any help appreciated.

    The reason I think its Beziers is that the photo has a sign for 'Bricoman' - and you'll find one in Beziers.

    The Bricoman in that area is in Villeneuve Les Béziers. I'm wondering why there's a tunnel though because I thought the geography of that area was pretty flat once you get down towards the coast. Béziers isn't that far inland (30km maybe?)

    There are many Bricoman all over France including St Omer where I used to live.


    The nearest ones to Roen are in Le Havre, Abbeville and Evreux......



    Can't help with the tunnel location......sorry.....:RollEyes:

    Look on google maps streetview at Boulevard Maréchal Juin, Béziers. It looks like the place the hedges and trees in your picture are more in bloom and the sign says Colorama on google but it could be.
