(CS) New CFL general director Marc Wengler plans to introduce a direct TGV link between Luxembourg and the south of France, he revealed on Tuesday evening.

At an assembly with members of a public transport association, Wengler said that the high-speed rail link could connect the Grand Duchy to Montpellier and Marseille in just seven hours.

If all goes to Wengler's plan, the route will be set up as part of a 2016 project connecting Luxembourg to Strasbourg via TGV.

The Grand Duchy is currently footing 40 million euros of the bill in cooperation with France.
