THE NEW PARIS-SUD-EST HIGH-SPEED LINE AND FRENCH PROSPECTS IN THE SPHERE OF HIGH-SPEED RAIL TRANSPORT

LA LIGNE NOUVELLE FERROVIAIRE A GRANDE VITESSE PARIS - SUD - EST ET LES PERSPECTIVES FRANCAISES EN MATIERE DE TRANSPORTS FERROVIAIRES A GRANDE VITESSE

After explaining briefly the background to the process which led to the decision to build the new Paris-Lyons high-speed line, the author describes the main features of the project and summarises the conclusions which, in his opinion, may be drawn from the examination of certain frequently non-quantifiable effects of this project, such as energy efficiency, town and country planning in France and the environment. The author finally considers the major issues arising from higher speeds, namely: - the degree of development of international passenger traffic over the next 15 years, and - the future of rail freight traffic.
