  • SNCF Fret fait naître l’espoir d’une reprise rapide des services fret via le Chunnel

Reste à voir si cela signifie que les services fret sous la Manche retrouveront rapidement leur vitesse de croisière. Ainsi, la SNCF et la RFF, le gestionnaire du réseau ferroviaire français, doivent encore déterminer qui prendra en charge les coûts des clôtures, alors que l’installation des systèmes de surveillance et de détection prendra encore un certain temps.
