Residents near Vernier-Meyrin-Cargo.

We are creating new sidings for passenger trains.

Sidings at Vernier-Meyrin-Cargo.

In order to begin extending Genève Cornavin station underground, there are several infrastructure modifications that need to be implemented. One of these modifications is the creation of a sidings area for passenger trains that cannot be stabled at the station in Geneva. These facilities will be constructed on the network next to the Vernier-Meyrin-Cargo station.

We would like to warn you, as a resident affected by this construction work, about occasional disruptions by giving you regular updates. You can read our calendar and our news updates to find out about upcoming work.
