? Getting to Lyon

Hi all,

I will be going NB on the A48 from Grenoble to Lyon.

viamichelin, Mappy and Maps.google all tell me to follow the signs saying
"La Tour-du-Pin/Chambéry/Genève"
to enter the A43 for Lyon.

That is the EB direction.

I want to go NB,

The map directions all shouw the route going under the A43 and turning left (NB).

Anyone done this?

Suggestions?

Well, of course you have--my eyes are deceiving me.

If I am reading my map correctly, you do want to go toward La-Tour-du-Pin but on the A48. A bit west of La Tour du Pin you will pick up the A43 for Lyon.

Thanks, Robes.

It was the signs that bothered me.
