France on Friday said it will build a high-speed rail link between central Paris and the Charles-de-Gaulle airport, ending decades of fruitless discussion on easing access to Europe's second-biggest airport.

The "CDG Express" is to be completed by 2023, the government said in an announcement in the Official Journal, on a budget of 1.6 billion euros ($1.77 billion).

The only current rail link to the airport, second in Europe only to London's Heathrow hub, is the "RER B" line, which doubles up as one of the French capital's busiest commuter services.

Passengers regularly complain about crowded trains with little room for luggage, too many stops, ageing carriages and a lack of security on the suburban line that runs through some of the Paris's poorest outskirts.

An earlier attempt at getting the CDG Express project going in 2006 was abandoned because of building challenges and political infighting.
