Denges-Morges: third track.

The public authorities plan to implement measures to enable capacity on the Lausanne–Geneva Airport line to be expanded. 

This plan is being implemented in the form of the “Denges–Morges: third track” project. It allows freight trains to enter and leave Lausanne marshalling yard without disrupting the flow of passenger trains, thus making rail services more stable and allowing them to flow more smoothly.

This upgrade is also part of the Léman 2030 programme, which aims to improve regional, long-distance and freight services between Geneva and Lausanne. The project will affect about 50 plots with no impact on the environment. 

The creation of a third track into Morges station and the installation of several switches on the section mean that it will be possible to put into operation the new services planned for between now and 2030. These developments make traffic flow more smoothly and make it possible to absorb the increase in passengers and goods on the Lausanne–Geneva Airport line. In the medium term, it will also make it possible to separate long-distance traffic from regional traffic.
