The project proposes the construction of a new train line along the West coast of Marseille. The train line exists already as an industrial route only and connects to Paris in the North and Bordeaux in the West. Transforming the line to allow for passengers would encourage natural growth of the small villages dotted around and near the line currently under threat of extinction. It will also help to reduce pressures on the city, that is currently priortising luxury development projects surrounding Marseille's title of City of Culture 2010. This way the city would be able to rehouse its existing residents who are being pushed out of the city whilst further expanding their tourism ambitions outside of the city's centre.
