For the inhabitants of Normandy, the works may take place at the end of the route, they can affect their route. The Paris-Caen-Cherbourg line is directly linked by the Batignolles urban project which entered its final phase at the end of November 2021. “Several railway infrastructures had to be moved and rebuilt, and changes in the maintenance facilities at the Clichy technicenter are continuing”, specifies the SNCF. The Paris-Rouen-Le Havre line is also concerned.
Concretely, the end of this project translates for users into train cancellations on Monday November 29 and Friday December 3, 2021. Additional stops are also planned. During this week, the SNCF advises to “limit your trips”.
For example, on the Paris-Caen-Cherbourg, 17 trains including 9 direct that will leave Caen to reach the capital, on a daily basis, against 22 in normal times. The first will leave Caen at 4:57 a.m., followed by a direct first at 6:56 a.m. to arrive in Paris at 8:58 a.m.
In the opposite direction, the last train will leave at 8:39 p.m. Still in the opposite direction, the first Paris-Caen is set at 6.30am, the last at 8.59pm.
