An amazing road that goes under water twice a dayBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/article/an-amazing-road-that-goes-under-water-twice-a-day.html
Passage du Gois (Passage du Gois) is a road laid along the bottom of the Bay of Bourneuf and connecting the mainland of France with the island of Noirmoutier. Twice a day, after low tide, it becomes accessible to traffic for several hours. The rest of the time, the tide floods it to a level of four meters.
The natural transition between the island and the mainland, which protrudes at low tide, was first mentioned on maps in 1701. In 1840, a capital road made of cobblestones was built along it, which allowed moving both on horseback and on carts.
Now the length of the road is 4.5 kilometers. The path seems to be small, but it is considered very risky.
Despite the large signs on both sides of the road with a schedule of tides, many people are trapped every year due to the rapidly rising water.
For such losers, rescue towers are built, where they can wait until the water comes down, but it will not be possible to save the car.
The Paradox… Almost always in the water, but it does not collapse, unlike the Russian ones, which are repaired every year at least.
