A dense, modern transport infrastructure network

A well-served region

Fast, safe trunk roads with direct connections to the main European motorway network, plus operational rail and river infrastructures are all assets that promote trade.

 

Transport networks

1,000 km
of motorways
and
expressways

Road and waterway transport

The motorway network is already efficient, with the A4, A5, A26, A31, A34 and A203 serving the region's main urban centres.

By 2015, this network of over 1,000 kilometres of motorways and expressways will be reinforced with a new section of motorway linking the A34 with Belgium (via Rocroi) and the North-European motorway network with the A304.

As for river transport, the ports of Nogent-sur-Seine and Givet are linked to the European wide-gauge river network (over 1,000 tonnes).

Since February 2009, the «dry port» of Chalindrey has run three weekly rail services for containers, between Antwerp-Chalindrey- Lyon .

Rail advances at high speed

The TGV

Champagne-Ardenne has been at the heart of the European TGV network since June 2007.

TGV East has strengthened the economic appeal of the northern half of the region, halving certain journey times. The south of the region is served by the Paris- Basel line, which is currently being modernized. The quality of the rail infrastructure is an additional asset to the economic development of the region.
