Marseille Saint-Charles station, located at the heart of Marseille urban node, represents a large bottleneck for rail traffic at the intersection of the North Sea-Mediterranean and Mediterranean corridors.
The objective of the Action is to contribute to increasing capacity along the existing local coastal line between the l'Estaque and Marseille Saint Charles stations in order to relieve congestion and make operations at the Marseille station less challenging. This would positively affect long distance traffic on the Paris-Lyon-Marseille line, ensure greater network reliability and therefore improve TER regional services.
The Action includes all technical and environmental studies to be fulfilled before works can start.
