The Strasbourg node, more particularly the Strasbourg-Vendenheim section, is the most frequented in Alsace. No further development of regional, high speed and freight trains will be possible as from 2017 and in 2020-2025 the line will be saturated. The Acton aims to remove a major bottleneck at this section and to improve the capacity of the node by guaranteeing its reliability for high speed, regional and freight traffic. The Action is part of the Global Project to improve passenger and freight traffic along the North Sea- Mediterranean, Atlantic and Rhine-Danube Core Network Corridors.
