Ben,

I live in Toulon so all of this is very much local news! Discussions are still ongoing as to which of the three proposals will go ahead, each has its own advantages and its detractors, but I'm sure one will go ahead. The favoured route at the moment seems to be the most northerly one passing via Brignolles, but it would be very costly and involve tunnelling through some of the mountain ranges down here. Our local paper (Var Matin) regularly covers meetings held between SNCF and the local inhabitants so I'll keep you posted.

regards

Clive

Interesting article in the local paper today. Some official in Alpes Maritime announced that the new LGV line to Nice will leave the current LGV line (to Marseille) at Aix en Provence, by pass Marseille and Toulon, pass north of Brignolles and follow the route of the current motorway to Nice, opening in 2020.

Nothing official from the Government yet, but it must have some credence as it was a full 2 page spread.
