Modane Station Shuts Down: Impact on Travelers and Local Economy

To secure the cliff, a Puma helicopter drops 4,000 liters of water with each rotation, 35 times. The strikes are carried out to the nearest centimeter. These are 5,000 cubic meters of rocks which are very weakened. More than a month ago, an avalanche of stones threw a thick cloud of dust onto the traffic lanes. Traffic was restored on the highway thanks to a container wall, but not on the railway line. In the town of Modane (Savoie), there have been no trains at the station for almost a month now. The TGVs which usually stop there in winter to transport the 27,000 travelers to the ski resorts will have to stop at the previous station, in Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne. “Instead of ten minutes by train, it will be fifteen to 20 minutes by bus,” explains Jean-Claude Raffin, mayor of Modane. This influx of travelers and the circulation of substitute buses in Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne worry some residents. “It’s the local economy, so if it doesn’t work out, there will be a real problem,” said one man. But for them, the main thing is that the good economic health of the stations is preserved. TF1 | Report N. Hadj-Bouziane, D. Paturel
