140 trains, including 54 through trains, run on this section of international line between Geneva and La Plaine each day. It is anticipated that both freight and passenger traffic will increase over the next 20 years.
The Geneva-La Plaine project aims to meet future infrastructure requirements, specifically:
- The platforms which are currently too short to accommodate the longer trains which will offer more seating for passengers (increase in capacity)
- Improving accessibility at all stops
- Modernising the entrance zones at stops
