Reestablishing the rail link between Paris and Charles De Gaulle airport was to take longer than expected, the SNCF rail company announced on Wednesday morning, predicting that trains would be running again about midday, not early in the morning as suggested on Tuesday when traffic stopped because a train broken overhead cable. The deadline was later extended to 4.00pm.
Officials said that more work was needed than previously imagined, with a number of parts to be replaced.
