Map of A9, France

The road forms part of the European route E15, as does the A9 road (Scotland). The road runs between Orange and Perthus, in the Pyrénées-Orientales at the frontier with Spain where it becomes the Autopista AP-7.

The route passes the following major towns and cities Perpignan (Pyrénées-Orientales), Narbonne (Aude), Béziers and Montpellier (Hérault), Nîmes (Gard) and Orange (Vaucluse) before joining the A7 autoroute (Marseille to Lyon). The route is 2x3 as far south as exit 41 (Perpignan-Nord); widening between exit 41 and the Spanish frontier is currently (2012) in progress.

The A9 autoroute was operated by the Autoroutes du Sud de la France (ASF), taken over in 2006 by Vinci Autoroutes. The cost of travelling the whole road through the Languedoc-Roussillon region in a car is 23.70 euros (from 1 February 2012).

Future

For 19 km around Montpellier the road is toll free as the road is the city’s by-pass. The toll at either end of the "Montpellier by-pass" includes a charge for the 17 kilometers to the next toll booth even if the vehicle leaves before reaching it. If a vehicle enters and exits the motorway away from the toll booth, there is no charge.

The toll booths on either side of the town cause considerable congestion in the summer. As a result, ASF have proposed to build a new road which is expected to open in 2017.
