Bord de Mer given new name

Known among many in the area as simply the Bord de Mer, the coastal road that links Antibes to Cagnes-sur-Mer via Villeneuve-Loubet (formerly called Route du Bord de Mer) has been given a new name: Boulevard des Italians.

Attending the road in Villeneuve-Loubet earlier today, president of the Alpes-Maritimes Eric Ciotti and local mayor Lionnel Luca officially inaugurated the second phase of construction works, which have allowed the addition of cycle and pedestrian lanes to a section of road that was previously lacking.

This portion of works – between Pont du Loup and Carrefour Eric Tabarly – have been designed as a smooth and urban and traffic-friendly transition from the A8 motorway to town centre roads.
