The new zone piétonne will operate on the Rue Notre Dame from the corner of the church to the site of the former boulangerie (in yellow above), taking in the coffee shop, restaurant and grocery store.
Deliveries will be allowed between 7h and 10h, but after that access will be closed to all vehicles, and the pedestrianised zone will operate seven days a week from 15 July until 31 August, 2020.
A key change is the direction of travel will be reversed on the remainder of the Rue Notre Dame, with drivers now asked to drive east to west from the Cahors direction (in orange), there will also be some sections of the surrounding roads closed to parking (in green).
The Saturday morning market in Villefranche-du-Périgord will also see the return of a ban on vehicles with the main square closed to traffic.
The Place de la Halle will be out of bounds to vehicles every Saturday from 8h to 14h, as well as the rue Saint Martin, and the restrictions will be in place until the end of August (in blue).
