The toll gate - Duplex A86 Tunnel

Pay the toll while entering the tunnel. Exit is free. Press the call button on the toll terminal for help from a remote attendant at any time.
The Duplex A86 is by nature an inconspicuous structure. The motorway runs underground to safeguard the natural heritage of the area west of Paris.
The architectural designed by landscape architect Michel Regembal blends the surface structures (exchangers, access shafts and ventilation units) into the surrounding landscape.
Duplex A86 toll stations are coated with NOxer®, an innovative coating that eliminates the main pollutants emitted by cars by means of a chemical reaction.

This is an overview of France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.

French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.

The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.

The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.

The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.

One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.

During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.

France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.
