France Alerte de sécurité

Significant disruptions to SNCF commuter rail service between Paris and Bordeaux March 25 due to protest in Vendôme; lingering delays expected over coming hours

TIMEFRAME expected from 25/3/2019, 12h00 until 26/3/2019, 11h59 (Europe/Paris). COUNTRY/REGION France, Vendôme


Workers of a paper company facing liquidation reportedly occupied the main train station and blocked the train tracks in Vendôme (Loir-et-Cher department) on Monday, March 25. The demonstration has reportedly caused significant disruptions to SNCF commuter rail services in southwestern France, including the temporary suspension of TGV high-speed rail service between 11:30-16:00 (local time), particularly impacting trains between Paris and Bordeaux. According to the SNCF, delays of more than two hours are to be expected through Monday evening as TGV trains are forced to divert and use alternate rail routes, impacting up to 26 trains and 16,000 passengers. 

Associated disruptions, including lingering train cancelations and delays, are to be expected over the coming hours. Further protests in Loir-et-Cher department and targeted disruptions to transportation services cannot be ruled out. 


Individuals in or traveling to destinations between Paris and Bordeaux or southwestern France are advised to monitor the situation, confirm the status of their reservations, maintain flexible itineraries, and anticipate transportation disruptions.
