After a black Thursday, this Friday will not be quite rosy.
In the aftermath of the interprofessional strike against the pension reform, some disruptions are still to be expected in Ile-de-France transport.
If the RATP plans "a return to normal" from Friday on its metro lines, traffic will not be optimal on the sections managed by the SNCF.
Strike of January 19: day of galley in transport in Paris
The railway company plans one out of two RER C trains, two out of three trains for lines D, G, N and U, and nine out of ten RER E trains.
As for the RER A and B and the transiliens J, K, L, P and R, they will run normally.
Forecasts incomparable with those of this Thursday, where only one train in ten was in service.
These slight upheavals are explained by the “residues” of the very followed mobilization, where 46.3% of the railway workers declared themselves to be strikers.
“When there is such a massive movement, there are always difficulties the following day”, we underline at SNCF Voyageurs.
Then, the strike notice runs until Friday morning, 8 am.
The national grid should be spared
Even if it is a "square strike" in the jargon of trade unionists - that is to say limited to one day - some may choose to continue the mobilization, individually, taking advantage of "notice dormant”.
"This remains limited to a minority of the workforce and brings very localized upheavals", notes SNCF Voyageurs.
“Operational” problems can also arise, such as “trains not in the right place to restart.
Nationally, travelers should be spared.
“A return to normal is expected tomorrow, with still some local disturbances in certain regions.
Traffic will be almost normal on the main lines, ”says SNCF Voyageurs, without giving further details.
This Thursday, the vast majority of trains remained at the dock, "in accordance with the forecasts announced".
No Intercités circulated, and only one TER in ten.
On the Atlantic axis, one in five trains ran, one in three on the North and South-East axis and one in four in the East.
On the Ouigo side, one in three transported passengers.
