RFG angry at French rail plan

[ November 2, 2012   //   ]

Britain’s Rail Freight Group says that it is unhappy at French Government proposals to restructure its railways, bringing infrastructure manager RFF and incumbent operator SNCF into a single organisation. It says that the planned Groupement d’Infrastructure Unique (single infrastructure group) will manage the infrastructure, the timetable and maintenance and renewals of the network. RFG believes that such a plan will kill competition and ensure that SNCF retains an increasing monopoly position until it closes down French rail freight completely. The state operator has already lost 50% of it is rail freight traffic in the last ten years.
