France is adding another line to its 4700km TGV high speed rail network. Work will start on the 375km Paris-Strasbourg line next year. Cost of the track construction is estimated at just £2bn and will be financed by a mix of government and local authority finance. The project includes 250km of new track in the northern section, with dedicated track on existing railway completing the route to Strasbourg.
