Four Nupes deputies arrived Saturday in Maurienne for a session to protest the new Lyon-Turin railway line. A public meeting is held in Fourneaux on Saturday night with "Vivre et act en Maurienne", a group that opposes the project. The CGT does not pass through them. "While more that 20% of the tunnel has been dug, and stopping it would cost more than completing, elected officials who lead people into believing that this is the only battle to wage take on a heavy policy responsibility," Ton Antoine Fatiga, for CGT transport and railway workers throughout the Alps.
This union has been supportive of this connection since its inception and it reiterates that: "The future and response to transport needs will require prioritization given to clean, collective transportation through new rail infrastructure. To facilitate both the transfer of freight between rail and road, he calls for the "rapid construction of access roads to tunnel" in order to enable TER services to be developed. Antoine Fatiga believes the Nupes are in the wrong fight on this issue: "I'm surprised that they make this their priority when the real issues are purchasing power and sharing wealth. They visit Lyon-Turin while Elisabeth Borne speaks about purchasing power.
