The French transport minister today joined the call for an investigation into Eurostar’s shutdown.
Dominique de Bussereau called the situation “unacceptable” and promised a thorough investigation into its causes.
“We cannot imagine that this mode of transport, which is fundamental between France and England, between England and Belgium and the rest of continental Europe doesn’t work because it’s snowing outside,” he said.
“Therefore, the government is asking, number one, for explanations, number two, we are going to do our own probe, number three, we demand that measures be taken so this does not happen in the future.”
For those seeking alternative routes between Paris, Brussels and London, the winter weather was dealing out more bad news.
