Work on the Railway Line between Antibes and Nice from 1st to 4th November

30 OCTOBER 2012

The double-track railway line between Cannes and Nice carries local passengers (Cannes – Nice), regional passengers (Marseille - Toulon - Nice), national and international passengers (TGVs and intercity trains) and freight transport. To increase the frequency of TER regional trains, while mainlining other traffic, the Réseau Ferré de France (the French Rail Network) is putting new infrastructure in place, in particular a third track between Antibes and Cagnes-sur-Mer.

Work to improve the railway infrastructure will take place between Antibes and Nice-Ville from Thursday 1st November at 8.50 am to Sunday 4th November 2012 at 5.15 pm. This will lead to the cessation of all rail traffic between Cannes and Nice-Ville during that time.

There will be normal service to stations to the east of Nice-Ville. The line between Nice-Ville, Monaco and Ventimiglia will not be affected by this work.

The Government wishes to draw the attention of businesses and workers in the Principality to this situation, as it seems inevitable that rail users will travel by car instead, and, as a consequence, it is likely that there will be major disruptions over the whole of the regional road transport network.

This work is being carried out over the four days of the Toussaint (All Saints' Day) holidays to minimise its impact, especially the impact on workers. One solution is carpooling, which is organised in the Principality by registering on the web site www.monacovoiturage.mc, where you will find all the relevant information.

If you wish to use public transport between Cannes and Nice, you can take the Conseil Général's (local council's) intercity line No. 200.
