More Régiolis trains for Midi-Pyrénées
Wednesday, August 05, 2015



ALSTOM confirmed on August 5 that the French region of Midi-Pyrénées has exercised an option worth €46m for eight additional Régiolis multiple units, taking the region's fleet of these trains to 32 sets

Midi-Pyrénées placed an initial order for 25 Régiolis sets in October 2009, the first of which were introduced on services from Toulouse to Latour-de-Carol and Mazamet in July 2014. The additional trains will be the four-car suburban variant

There is already a way to exit Gare de l'Est from the northern end, to reach the Château-Landon metro station, so even today it is possible to cross the tracks at this point unsing an underpass. According to the French Wikipedia, it was built for luggage delivery, but has been repurposed. It is also very small, probably 3m wide, and cannot really be expected to carry a large number of passengers.

The blocking issue anyway is that although the distance between Gare de l'Est and Magenta station on line E is about 60m, the tunnel to build needs to pass below a large 19th century sewer, and this means that extra precautions would be required to build it. To reduce the costs of building RER E, the pedestrian tunnel has been postponed, and nothing has happend since then.

Hope too it will be nice for Rennes in 2020...

But for "the smallest of the french big cities" (city : 200 000 inhabitants, conurbation : only 300 000, metropolitan area : 700 000), un new modern train station (20 million passengers/year in 2025) with a futur little central business district, 2 métro lines (1 billion € for the B line) and a speed railway line to Paris (90 minutes), is for me exeptionnal !

Probably well-connected local politicians.
Otherwise it's hard to understand how Nice or Bordeaux, which are bigger, get a tram while Rennes gets a metro.

I don't think so because all these projects have been got while the republicans were in the government (and Rennes is the most important socialist city in France since 1977).

With a tram :

-we can have more lines (ex : Bordeaux and Nantes 3 lines, Grenoble 4, Montpellier and Strasbourg 5)...Rennes 1
-in France, it means beautiful urban renovations along rails. Bordeaux* is really beautiful now whereas Rennes still a little bit more austere
-there are most of the times long lines (20km) to go to the conurbation all around the city

In Rennes, unlike Bordeaux/Nantes, there isn't a big conurbation, just the city which is extremely dense. So, a short VAL line (and 2 in 2020) is the best solution (+ bus express for rural towns surrounded by fields)

*Bordeaux (with its mayor Chaban Delmas) has tried to have its metro during the 90's.

A metro, even if it is a VAL, is extremely more expensive, while a tram isn't.
Rennes could have got a tram network, getting to more places for a lesser cost.

Besides, Rennes is not much smaller than Nantes or Strasbourg, just about the same size as Montpellier, and certainly bigger than Reims, Dijon or Le Havre.
All of them have a tram, not a metro.

I don't agree that Rennes is much more dense than any of them. It's no Spanish city.

So yes, I guess it actually is a matter of well-connected politicians (not necessarily for good).
The fact that Brittany is a PS stronghold means nothing. These things are not about whose party rules what, but about who's "friends" with who.

The main question is about the influence of the city at a national and international levels. Considering this, Rennes is hardly comparable to Strasbourg or Nantes, both way more influents...

In my opinion it is more a question of political influence, probably that somebody really highly placed has helped a lot to push this project (maybe the old prime-minister, that was from this part of France ?)...

Anyway, in the same time in France we are seeing a lot of very importants projects that are stopped because of lack of public money, that's why it looks like "trowing money by the windows" too me...
