    There is a road. I can’t remember much about it. From Riche Terre Round about, you go towards Terre Rouge. There is a secondary road. It takes around 15 mins top to be in the centre of Port Louis in the morning despite the heavy traffic jams.

    Think it is the
    Solitude (Triolet) – Arsenal – Terre Rouge – Jumbo Riche Terre – Le Hochet – Abercombie – Port Louis road.

  • So, I did not miss it after all 🙂

  • The Baie du Tombeau one. But not at the Baie du Tombeau roundabout, the Mer Rouge one.

  • Yeah, I know which one, because I frequently go past this roundabout while driving inside Roche Bois.

  • Si mo sorti 7hrs mo prend Autoroute normale la
    Solitude (Triolet) – Arsenal – Terre Rouge – Motorway – Port Louis – 10.9 Km

    Si mo p sorti vers 7:30 mo passe par Callebasse la:
    Solitude (Triolet) – Arsenal – Calebasses – Motorway – Port Louis – 14.1 Km

    I’m a native of Port-louis. But i live in Fond du Sac since 1994, the calebases road to Terre Rouge roundabout is the sucker punch. Its 4.2km in excess to Arsenal. For me its Rs20 of surplus diesel or 3 minutes X 80km/h. Hey the Baie du Tombeau road seems to be an alien route heading to planet Mars. Lol

  • The Baie du Tombeau one is pretty quick, most of the times. The only jam is at the Roche Bois roundabout where the police officers sometimes forget that there are vehicles waiting.


    I guess you are not aware that vehicular traffic flow from any directions of the island towards or through P.Louis are given more fluidity prior to the passage of our members of the National Assembly (for security reasons) hve 2 vice-PM from the north(A.B & X.D ).. One usually reaches P.L around 8.00hrs the other around if you are moving towards PL being on their ‘sillage’ along M2 you luckily may get quicker to your destination 🙂 otherwise if you are emerging from side-roads at the time they are will have to wait a bit longer 🙁

  • haha. Thanks for this piece of valuable info 🙂
    Will take their schedule into consideration.

    Well, everyday i got to go from triolet to rose-hill and usually set off at 07:00/7:30 and frankly guys the best routes i find are triolet-arsenal-calebasses-portlouis or triolet-arsenal-st joseph-baie du tombeau-port louis. The only place to bypass is the terre-rouge roundabout…massacre sa laba la!!!
