SNCF Plans to Invest About EUR 1 Billion in 5 Years to Renovate the Ageing RER C Line

SNCF planed to invest about EUR 1 billion (USD 1.158 billion) in five years to renovate the ageing RER C line. The Ile-de-France region's transport should be improved in 2015. The RER line C's infrastructure is too old and needs renovation and upgrade. Moreover, traffic on the line was further disturbed by the fire that flared up at a signal box in Vitry-sur-Seine last July and is expected to return to normal in 2017 at the earliest. A total of EUR 900 million were invested in modernizing the region's network in 2014, compared with EUR 600 million in 2013. Two large-scale projects have been planned for 2015 including extension of the RER Eole to the west, and the CDG Express line between Paris and the Charles de Gaulle airport.
