Paris rail terminus temporarily shut down by unplanned strike
Wednesday, January 14, 2009
Gare Saint-Lazare was closed from 10 am local time on Tuesday morning. Members of the Sud Rail labour union later voted to return to work, and the station re-opened at 7 pm the same day.
Gare Saint-Lazare is Europe's third busiest station, and its lines serve Paris suburbs, as well as inter-city routes to Normandy in northern France.
