The railway section concerned is currently only double-track and is used by high speed passenger, regional express and freight trains around Bordeaux which is a Core urban node on the Atlantic Corridor. As the current infrastructure is reaching its capacity limits, the solution that has been chosen is the creation of a high-speed connection between Bordeaux and Toulouse and Bordeaux and Spain.
The Action financed under CEF is to carry-out all preparatory studies that are necessary before starting the works relating to the Rail Enhancements of the South of Bordeaux (AFSB). At the end of this Action, the works phase shall start.
