The LGV Est européenne (often shortened to LGV Est) is an extension to the French high-speed rail network, connecting currently Vaires-sur-Marne (near Paris) and Baudrecourt (near Metz and Nancy), and later Vaires-sur-Marne and Vendenheim (near Strasbourg). As of 2009, it is the newest high-speed line in France and still under construction, with 300 km (190 mi) of a planned 406 km (252 mi) in service. It provides fast service between Paris and the principal cities of eastern France and Luxembourg, and several cities in Germany
