A landslide has blocked the France <> Italy route via Modane

Train services will be impacted until at least November 1st,

| Last Updated: 8 days ago

Due to obstacles on the track (falling rocks), traffic is interrupted in both directions between Modane and St-Michel-Valloire for several days or even weeks.
This route is taken by the TGV and Frecce trains on the Paris - Lyon ↔ Torino - Milano route and by TER trains on the Lyon ↔ Modane route.
All trains which usually take this route are therefore cancelled until further notice.

Tickets agents are offering alternative Paris ↔ Milano journeys, which involve connecting in Zurich while Paris ↔ Torino journeys involve connections in both Milano and Zurich.

On the Lyon ↔ Modane route the journey involves a bus replacement on a route through Grenoble.
