SNCF Strike: Disrupted Rail Traffic, Normandy is One of the Most Affected Regions

The ongoing strike of the SNCF unions resumes on Saturday 7th April, 2018, at 7pm. Rail traffic should still be very seriously disrupted in Normandy, Sunday and Monday.

One out of four trips (train or bus) will take place in Normandy, for the third day of the bumpy SNCF strike on Sunday 8th April 2018.

A very disturbed traffic

The four unions of SNCF have filed a national strike notice from Saturday 7th April, 2018 at 7pm. “Therefore, traffic will be very disrupted on the rail network, April 8th and 9th,” said the SNCF in a statement.

In Normandy, considered as one of the regions most affected by the strike, here are the trains that will circulate Sunday, April 8:

  • Paris-Rouen-le Havre: one train in three
  • Paris-Caen-Cherbourg: two trains out of five
  • Paris-Granville: one train out of three
  • Rouen-Dieppe: a train on two
  • Le Havre-Rolleville: all trains

SNCF invites customers who have planned to travel on Sunday 8 April and Monday 9 April to make the necessary arrangements and precautions.

A 36-day strike




The galley of users is far from over. On Tuesday 3rd April, 2018, railway workers hired a long-term strike for two days out of five against the government’s rail reform. In all, 36 days of strike are expected by the end of June.
