TRANSPORTS - The president of Hauts-de-France and that of the SNCF spoke about numbers and safety during a visit on Monday to Lille-Flandres station

Small country train. This Monday morning, the president (LR) of Hauts-de-France, Xavier Bertrand , met the president of SNCF , Jean-Pierre Farandou, during a partly private visit to Lille-Flandres station . Relations between the two institutions are tumultuous to say the least around the TER service for which the region spends nearly 500 million each year. In front of the press, however, the understanding seemed cordial even if the subjects raised were not easy.

Centrist senator Nathalie Goulet said the draft was "an attack on public freedoms", while the far-left deputy Alexis Corbiere said "we could at least have a collective discussion if the idea is to limit our public liberties." In response, public sector minister Amelie de Montchalin said the bill was "not at all made to

In the hall of the station, the two presidents had a long discussion with a railway security team (SUG) recently equipped with a dog capable of finding narcotics and explosives. "The presence of a defense dog can also make sense, to protect travelers and agents," notes Xavier Bertrand. The theme of security seems important for the boss of the region, even if he recognizes that it is not in his attributions: "We will continue to invest in this area, with cameras and human resources", assures he. The Hauts-de-France are not however outdone with a thousand SNCF cameras on the territory, including 300 just for the two Lille stations. “In Lille, we are already well secured,” admits an agent from the SUG. "But the penal response must follow, reminders of the law are not enough", slips Xavier Bertrand.

A 45% drop in TER frequentation

After this little campaign digression, the two men have entered the hardship: the numbers. The coronavirus epidemic has led to a 45% drop in TER frequentation despite some fine commercial operations (ETER and TER Lille-Paris). However, there was no question of compensating for these with money from the region: "It was balanced by rolling less equipment but there is still a loss in terms of revenue of 5.8%", deplores Franck Dhersin, in charge of transport to the region. For him, it was teleworking in particular that emptied the trains: "We absolutely have to bring back travelers and seduce people who did not take the train," he adds.

And to attract a different audience, Xavier Bertrand wants an aggressive pricing policy: “We are discussing the prices. We have to find solutions. On some lines, things are improving, we feel that the SNCF wants to do well, "he admits. “To make the train popular, it must be accessible with appropriate prices,” adds Jean-Pierre Farandou. On that, the two presidents agree. There remains the reliability of the service. “For regularity problems, there is still work to be done. I want people to get their money's worth, ”insists Xavier Bertrand. "We are still going to invest 1.6 billion euros in four years," recalls Franck Dhersin.
