The railway section concerned is currently only double-track and is used by high speed passenger, regional express and freight trains around Bordeaux which is a Core urban node on the Atlantic Corridor. The current infrastructure is fast reaching its capacity limits. The purpose of the Action is to carry-out all preparatory studies that are necessary before starting the works relating to the Rail Enhancements of the South of Bordeaux (AFSB). It is part of the Global Project consisting in the creation of a high speed connection between Bordeaux and Toulouse and Bordeaux and Spain. At the end of the Action, it is expected that the works phase will be able to start.
