Two days after the sixth interprofessional rally against the pension reform, strikes continue, especially at the SNCF. The transport company announced Thursday a traffic still "strongly disrupted" for Friday with half of its TGV Inoui and Ouigo canceled as well as 60% of its TER, and a level of service that should remain equivalent throughout the weekend.
The public group therefore calls on travelers to "cancel or postpone their trips on March 10 and the weekend", while a renewable strike was launched Tuesday at the call of all railway unions against the pension reform.
In the Paris region, suburban train traffic has deteriorated sharply
High-speed traffic will be greatly reduced on the North and Atlantic axes with 60% of trains cancelled while on the East, South-East and Ouigo axes, there will be one train out of two. As in previous days, province-to-province connections will be almost non-existent with 90% of TGVs cancelled.
Only 25% of Intercity trains will run. Internationally, two-thirds of Eurostars are maintained and 60% of Thalys (Benelux), Lyria (Switzerland) and routes to Germany. Only a third of the planned trains to Italy will run and a quarter of those to Spain.
In the Paris region, suburban train traffic will remain severely degraded. This will be especially the case for the RER D and line R of the Transilien with only 20% of trains in circulation and many stations not served during rush hour on the D. One third of the usual service will be provided on RER C and half on RER B and E and Transilien lines J, K, L, N and P. Lines H and U will see two out of three trains running and service will be normal for tram lines T4 and T11.
