This winter, a brand new track between Noyelles and Le Crotoy

Dimanche 5 Novembre 2017 This winter, a brand new track between Noyelles and Le Crotoy Monday 6th November will witness the start of the largest operation ever undertaken on the Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme: the complete rebuild of the 6.5km (4 miles) long stretch between Noyelles and Le Crotoy, of which 1600 meters (one mile) will be re-laid on concrete sleepers. Work is scheduled to be completed by March 31st, 2018, in time for trains to run again on that part of the system for the Easter holidays.
A few figures will give an idea of the magnitude of this task: 10,625 sleepers will be replaced, as well as 51,000 sleeper screws, 13,290 rail pads, 3,000 fishplate bolts, while 13 kilometers (8 miles) of rail will be removed, sorted, relaid or replaced if worn, and 6,500 tons of ballast spread along the trackbed. This major piece of work is entirely financed by the Somme Departmental Council, which has been the owner of the railway's infrastructure since it opened back in 1887. For our passengers, this will ensure enhanced comfort and safety for the next four decades, as well as significantly reduced wear and tear on the rolling stock.
