High-speed train planning in France: Lessons from the Mediterranean TGV-line


  • Leheis, Stéphanie


This paper explores the implementation and decision-making process in TGV projects and how these have changed, especially since the construction of the Mediterranean TGV-line. While paradoxically, this project was probably the most controversial, it is now seen as a huge success for all the actors involved.
