When 'ministers start to consider' something, it's virtually guaranteed nothing will be done...FRANCE: Transport Minister Jean-Baptiste Djébbari has said his ambition is ‘to have about 10 overnight train services in 2030’. Djébbari’s statement came as ministers start to consider a report on the future of overnight and daytime TET services.
Originally due to have been submitted to parliament by June 30 2020, the report puts forward proposals for a network of overnight trains centred on four core routes: Marseille – Dijon, Marseille – Bordeaux, Tours – Lyon and Paris – Toulouse.
