INTERURBAN tram-train services linking Lyon with the airport and TGV station at Saint-Exup?ry are expected to start running in the autumn of 2009, following the signing of a 30-year concession to develop and operate the ?100m Leslys project (RG 10.02 p609).Conseil G?n?ral du Rh?ne has selected the RhonExpress consortium led by Vinci and Veolia. Other partners are Vossloh Infrastructure Services, Cegelec and Caisse des D?p?ts et Consignations. RhonExpress will be responsible for infrastructure construction, supply of the E&M equipment and rolling stock, and operation of the service 365 days a year. Following the alignment of the former Est de Lyon railway, the 23?km route will share tracks for 13?4?km with the recently-opened Lyon light rail route T3, operated for Sytral by Keolis.
