Our lines contribute to your growth

Lyon-Chambéry-Turin Line Project

The link project between Lyon, Chambéry and Turin provides for the creation of a line of 140 km. As a real alternative to road transport, this new route will make trade and travel easier for all those who use the train. This new line will be a major engine of growth for the local economy and will also be a gateway to Europe. It is scheduled to come into service by 2030.

Last update :

61 % of the line built underground,

71 towns crossed,

59 structures (viaducts), 8 tunnels





Commitment to the environment – ensuring quality of life and protecting the landscape

SNCF Réseau has put considerable effort into analysing and dealing with the effects on the areas impacted by this project. To protect the quality of life of the neighbouring residents and the landscape as much as possible, several actions have been taken to reduce the impact of the route on agricultural land and to blend it into the landscape.

SNCF Réseau is especially committed to the protection of biodiversity, water resources and landscape through the application of protective measures.

Finally, SNCF Réseau is taking appropriate action against natural hazards (e.g. floods, falling rocks) by ensuring the safety of the worksites and railway network.


Project partners

  • The total budget required to carry out this project stands at €7.7 billion (value in 2011)
  • This operation will include the European Union, French state, Rhône-Alpes region, the relevant departments and large urban areas, SNCF Réseau.
