The first section was opened in 1972. The last section was completed connecting this junction to the Vieux-Port of Marseille in 1989.


This motorway will be extended towards Arles by upgrading the N568 over the Plaine de la Crau. No date has been scheduled as yet, only a by-pass for Port-de-Bouc which is currently being evaluated.
