TGV designated development area (ZAC)


The future Gare-Canal district in Mulhouse profits from three levers of development :
- the arrival of the Rhin-Rhône high speed TGV train in December, placing Mulhouse at just 2 h 40 from Paris ;
- the exceptional public transport access: tram, tram-train and TER (regional express train) ;
- the Rhin-Rhône canal running alongside the district.
The project proposes combining the existing infrastructures (bridges, railways and canal) with the multimodal function of a contemporary station and the service activities of the future district.
