Road Closure - La Tania to Méribel Village Closed for 4 Months
The La Tania to Méribel Village road has been closed since the 7th July and is expected to be closed for around 4 months, re-opening around the end of October. It’s always suffered from land slips and this is a major piece of work to sort it out properly hopefully. Further disruption is expected for the next two Summers as a separate road (in effect a bridge) higher up and away from the land slide area is created. Ferg has confirmed it’s not passable even by MTB, there’s a big fence to climb over and then French engineers wielding explosives… Pic Here
Note also that heading from La Tania towards Geneva via Annecy this Summer has major delays - there is no left turn on the main road (D1508) at the roundabout as you arrive in Annecy with all traffic diverted in to the centre of town. Definitely worth going via Talloires around the other side of the lake on the D909/909A at busy times. The other direction (heading from Annecy towards Albertville) is unaffected.
