Disruption, chemical accident in the North of France (follow up)

SNCF Réseau informs that the circulation on the line between Charleville-Mézières and Hirson will be restored with adapted technical measures from 27/07 to 15/08 in both directions. A specific period will be left to carry out the necessary works (level crossing signalling).

From 27/07 from Monday to Sunday incl., traffic is expected to start again from 6pm to 8am (taking into account a municipal order). A temporary speed limit of 30 km/h is planned for a limited part (track 2)

The works between Hirson and Liart are planned from 27/07 to 15/08 every day (including weekends) from 8am to 6pm (including 1 hour for opening/closing procedures). During the day (9am – 5pm), level crossings “16-17 and 18” will be open during the works to allow road traffic. At night (6pm-8am), the level crossings will be closed to allow rail traffic.

The return to normal operations is still planned for mid-August.
