I would be really interested to see other "thematic" stations in other world subways.

Do you have pictures ?

Anyway, I've found other photos to illustrate Paris subway.




This is the at Haussmann St-Lazare.




This is the at La Plaine-Stade de France.




The huge crowd getting into the at Châtelet.




Metro viaduct for the line between Gare d'Austerlitz and Quai de la Rapée.




This is the at St-Lazare.




This is the at Cité.




This is the at Saint-Michel.




Office buildings built below the viaduct at Issy-les-Moulineaux.




This is the at Saint-Germain-des-Prés.




This should be the at Gare d'Austerlitz, but I'm not sure.




This is the at Passy.




This is the entrance to the metro from the Gare de Lyon.




This is the at Louvre-Rivoli.




I just like that picture because we almost hear the guy thinking : "What the hell is that weirdo taking in picture ???"




Bir-Hakeim bridge on




This is the at Saint-Michel.




Bir-Hakeim bridge on and viaduct taken from the Eiffel Tower on a snowing day.




The viaduct.

Very capricious! Some of the new ones on 14 are great too. I can't remember which one, but there's one that looks like there's a rainforest on the side. The Bibliothèque National station is great too.

it's just the way to show far perspective in one small pic, just an impression for our eyes. have a look at the cars on the streets, they ar soooooooo 'short'
otherwise, the distances between stations in Paris are really very short, in some places waiting for train u can see from one station plattform the other one, as there are only 400m or so to the next station.

Oh wow! I love this, I have been to Paris and in a number of metro stations there but I never saw any of those, they're amazing! Just one of the things that makes Paris so special, such an amazing city.

My favourite station of the ones you posted:


Also I love the use of those railway viaduct arches for office space, just brilliant:

You're right indeed. This is the Gare de Lyon. Well, I've made the correction in my post.

Thanks !

"Paris' metropherique"

Hi guys,

Just wanted to show you what the "metropherique" is. As you may know, Paris is surrounded by the "peripherique", busiest highway in Europe with 2 million cars a day for only 37 kilometers...

Most of the 16 metro lines converge from the near suburbs to the city center. The problem is the congestion of the Paris city center and that more and more people do live in a suburb and go to work in another one through Paris' city center.

Click here for the map: http://www.parisradical.net/paris13/...ture-_a39.html

Metrophérique is a huge project (nearly 20 years old, previously called Orbitale) which consists in building a 40 km underground metro circle around Paris to avoid congestion and ease suburb to suburb traffic. It would be a few kilometers from the "périphérique" highway, outside the city.

See on the picture different options of what this line could be. Of course every city around Paris wants its metro stop! Politics are coming first...

Cost is....4 to 6 billion euros (knowing from the past experiences in digging tunnels, let's say...10 billion euros! lol)

Conclusion: is Paris gonna make it or not considering its huge costs? What do you think about this idea? Is it going to be an automatic metro line like number 14 or in some other cities? Thanks!

the forecast of the old project orbital was 1,000,000 commuter per average workday
The majority of employment are located in inner suburbs
Paris 1.6 millions
inner suburbs 2 millions
Oulter suburbs 1.5

the major part of the population is located in inner suburbs
Paris 2.1 millions
Inner suburbs 4 millions
Oulter suburbs 4 milllions

Are the employment areas all concentrated around the future stations of this ring line, or should people still transfer to another line to get there? In the latter case, I guess many people will simply take a one (or two) seat ride through the city center. BTW: doesn't Paris already have a tram ring?

AFAIK the tram ring line is incomplete, that's if it's planned to be a complete ring.

The majority are concentrated around the future stations
La Defense, Val de Seine, Paris Sud, Plaine st Denis ...
for other ( Velizy Orly..) Tramway lines or Metro extention are planned.
Areas around the new subway are very dense (8,000 at 20,000 in/km2)

There is no Tramway ring in Paris
but three tram lines
T1 is located in north inner suburbs 90,000 commuter per day
T2 is in west inner suburbs 66,000 commuter per day
T3 (opening december 2006) is in city proper the traffic forecast is 100,000 commuter per day)
there three tramway with extention will form a 1/2 ring

Made by me (Really bad isn't it ?)

but tramways are really insufficient for a big city with 10 million inhabitants like Paris.

Are there any plans to connect sections T1 and T3 together to make a complete ring?
