Clearance Problem with Trains in France

Clearance Problem with Trains in France :A tragi-comic scandal is now being discussed in France, related to the France Railway Company SNCF.

It has been discovered that the standards of all the stations were not considered in manufacturing the new generation of trains.

COST WILL BE 50 MILLION EURO
To ensure compliance of the trains with the platform standards, modification work has started in 1300 stations. It is indicated that at least €50 million will be spent to ensure that the wider new trains can fit into station platforms. It will take about 3 years to complete the works.

‘WE WILL NOT PAY A SINGLE CENT ‘

Mr. Alain Rousset, Chairman of French Regional Association was harsh. Mr. Rousset stated that “we refuse to pay even one cent for the repair costs. We are not responsible from these mistakes and will not bear the costs for it.”
