Remedial work on monaco train tunnel sept-march 2014

Massive work on the Monaco train tunnnel is due to start on sept 30th untill 30th march 2014.

Only one line will be operational though the tunnel during the day, which will have knock on effects on trains east -ie monaco and over to menton.

there will only be 2 trains per hour instead of 4 between monaco and menton

Roquebrune-Cap-Martin station will not be operational at all during this 6 month period and Carnoles station will be used only at peak times.

There will be no effect on stations/train timings west of Monaco [Nice cannes antibes etc]

Timetables will be reased nearer the time

When they finish all this no doubt there will be something else -a TGV line perhaps?? And I have had major problems just crossing the road in a maze of works at Antibes station but they've just planted about 50 full height palm trees so it will be a very picturesque bus station.

The TGV line , if it ever materialises, and work on this is still pretty much vapuor until 2016 at least , will supposedly stop at Nice

It amazed me that the new rail line was being put in with massive disruption and cost and was not intended to ever beTGV ready.

However there is an opposing viewpoint about TGVs going from Lyon via Italy to Nice , if only the trains were on the same kind of track
