More train delays for Monaco

A number of trains on the line serving Monaco Monte-Carlo were cancelled on Monday evening due to a failure of equipment at Nice station. The latest incident underlines the problem of under-investment in rail infrastructure and its maintenance, critics say.

The railway service is the most commonly used means of transport for commuters travelling to and from the Principality, but the regional TER network provides one of the two worst services in France. Earlier on Monday, trains serving Monaco were subject to delays after migrants invaded the tunnels to the east of the Principality.

However, most of the delays and cancellations on the local service are caused by strike action.
