Trenitalia planning Paris – Brussels high speed service

EUROPE: Italian national operator Trenitalia has confirmed that it is holding preliminary discussions with its suppliers and relevant regulatory bodies regarding the possible launch of an open access high speed service between Paris and Brussels.

Speaking in Milano on October 28, Pietro Diamantini of FS Group's Passenger Division suggested that the route could be the first international corridor to use the V300 Zefiro trainsets which Trenitalia is currently receiving from a consortium of Bombardier and AnsaldoBreda. Trenitalia has ordered 50 of the eight-car multi-system high speed trains under a €1·6bn contract awarded in September 2010.

Around 1h20 like the others.

I don't see the link with Paris-Milan TGVs. These use also slow mountain lines, beside linking much farther cities.

(Paris-Milan could be done in 6h30 if the TGVs used the Milan-Turin HSL, btw - they don't so because they are not equipped with ETCS)

well there's the new Turin-Lyon Base tunnel that will be in place within the next ten years.

I wouldn't be surprised if we also saw at least one daily return trip between Milano and Paris. That way Trenitalia can avoid a long emtpy movement to rotate trainsets back to Italy for maintenance.

From Rail Journal:


Florence - Rome HSL to get new station?
Tuesday, November 10, 2015

THE results of a feasibility study led by Tuscany and Umbria into building a new station on the Florence - Rome high-speed line were presented to local mayors, chambers of commerce as well as Trenitalia, NTV and Italian Rail Network (RFI) officials on November 3

The two regions signed an MoU for the project in July 2014, and the report, presented by Mr Vincenzo Ceccarelli and Mr Giuseppe Chianella, the respective transport regional councillors of Tuscany and Umbria, recommend two locations for the station:
  • Rigutino, South of Arezzo and 100m from the Florence - Rome line and could result in the restoration of Frassineto station, and
  • Creti, in Cortona, a straight, flat and open section at Km175 in the Di Chiana valley
