Access to Nice Airport was very difficult on Tuesday morning after a rockfall at about 06:00 closed the A8 Autoroute in the direction Italy-France between Nice Nord and St.Isadore. The number 80 Airport Express was taking up to 2 hours and 30 minutes for the Monaco-Airport journey, using the Moyenne Corniche and Promenade des Anglais..

On the A8 itself a traffic jam of 30 km was reported.

In addition, bad weather was affecting a number of inbound and outbound flights and the trams into the centre of Nice were suspended until after midday.

A scooter accident in Cap d’Ail caused the closure of the Albert II Tunnel before Jardin Exotique, causing further congestion in the Principality on Tuesday morning.
