This new line has an important role to play at European level, improving links with Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland. It constitutes the French part of what is planned to become a major railway corridor - the East European High Speeed Line - between Paris and Budapest which will serve almost 10% of Europe’s population.
From 2007, the Eastern TGV, the first rail link to operate at 320 km/h, will bring the cities in the East of France the major benefits a high speed rail service provides for the well-being and prosperity of the population and the economy.
We would like the articles in this section to serve as a tribute to the men and women who are participating at whatever level in the success of this major project.
