MotoGP Valencia: the unblocked highway, the sacred path passable!


The A9 motorway, so vital to the road link between France and Spain, was blocked since Monday by Catalan demonstrators with political demands that they would have liked to hear until, at least, Wednesday. But the authorities intervened and the sacred way is now practicable since 16:30. The Grand Prix of Valencia is therefore on track, however beware, said protesters retreated to the national roads …

" As a result of the work and security operations conducted by the company Vinci Highway, the A9 motorway is reopened to traffic. This is the announcement of the Prefecture of Pyrenees-Orientales. A joint operation of the French Gendarmerie and the Catalan police, the Mossos d'Esquadra, was launched on Tuesday morning to raise dams erected on this busy and vital axis for trade. From 3,000 to 5,000 trucks cross this border each day at the eastern end of the Pyrenees.

After leaving the highway, protesters retreated to Jonquere, Spanish city of Catalonia close to the border, where they blocked the national highway N-II. They protest against the sentencing in mid-October of nine Catalan independence leaders to heavy prison terms for their role in the secession attempt of 2017.
