SNCF has announced that a majority of journeys between Paris and Normandy will last 30 minutes longer than usual between July 11 and August 15, 2022. In question, work carried out to extend the RER E to the west and modernize the network from Mantes-la-Jolie (Yvelines), reports

Le Parisien


For users, this news does not pass.

"It's a delusional situation, lamented to the daily Pierre Dumont, president of the association of users of the Paris-Cherbourg train (Manche).

In the middle of summer, it will take 2h45 to make Paris-Caen, knowing that in addition some trains disappear!

Personally, for example, I will therefore arrive at 8:55 a.m. in Paris instead of 8:19 a.m.

And I should leave at 5:20 p.m. instead of 5:59 p.m.

How do you expect me to explain this to my employer?


The ex-Miss France Amandine Petit also can't take the delays anymore

The SNCF did not wish to respond to these criticisms, contenting itself with confirming in a press release “extensions of journey times, knowing that 91% of the offer will circulate during the summer”.

So glaringly true that I downloaded and edited the video.

Thanks to Amandine Petit, Miss Normandy and Miss France, for defending the Norman rail.

After some national media, the region will perhaps be aware of the fiasco after the bluster at the regional assembly

In an Instagram story published on April 22, Amandine Petit had indeed expressed her anger over the systematic delays of the lines between Normandy and Paris and had directly challenged the president of the region Hervé Morin.
