Since 6:15 a.m., there has been no power supply between La Brohinière and Lamballe, making it impossible for trains to travel between these two stations. A tree that fell on the railway line damaged a pole supporting a catenary in its fall.

A train with 40 people on board had to be stopped in the middle of the track around 6:15 a.m. on this section. They were evacuated by bus with the help of firefighters.

Several hours needed to restart traffic

The other trains traveling on the northern line were stopped at stations. Bus rotations have also been set up for passengers who got off at Lamballe and Saint-Brieuc in order to bring them home or drive them to their destination.

For the moment, train traffic is stopped in both directions between Brest and Rennes. “Agents are on site to restore the infrastructure,” said SNCF. Other reinforcements also left Rennes. At present, the resumption of traffic is estimated at noon in the Brest-Rennes direction and at 5 p.m. in the Rennes-Brest direction. »
