Why do you want choose cheaper technology....and upgrad it after? it's better to choose the last one now.
I think there are also other "security reasons". Public authorities have been slow to implement a security plan for the metro....

What security reasons? Are they putting in metal detectors to prevent the natives from doing what they did to the Paris RER in July 1995?

Or were you perhaps referring to safety vis-a-vis making sure the trains don't derail?

Je suis complètement d'accord avec ça. La ligne 14 est l'une des préférée des Parisiens. Jamais de retard, jamais de panne, jamais de grève, des métros plus fréquents, plus tard dans la nuit. Les Algériens ont évidemment raison de choisir le plus moderne. Le but d'un métro ce n'est pas de créer de l'emploi en embauchant des gens. Et plus un métro est bien conçu et efficace plus il participe à l'attractivité d'un territoire.

I completely agree with that. Line 14 is one of the favorite of the Parisians. Never late, never down, never to strike, subways more frequent later in the night. The Algerians were obviously right to choose the more modern. The purpose of a metro that is not creating jobs by hiring people. And over a subway is well designed and effective addition he participated in the attractiveness of a territory.

According to this theory every new metro line in the world should be automatic... I'm not against automatic driverless metro lines, but I find quite silly to have a finished metro line closed for more than 2 years waiting for the new technology.

Certes ça n'est pas du bel anglais mais la phrase se comprend. Je pense même qu'en écrivant une simple suite de noms et d'adjectifs, sans articulation entre eux, on comprend l'idée : "métro", "efficace", "rapide", "attractivité", "territoire".

Et je salue au passage l'efficacité certes imparfaite mais impressionnante tout ce même de google traduction, en tout cas depuis le français vers l'anglais. Et de toute façon ça ne cesse de s'améliorer. Pour les métros sans conducteurs comme pour google traduction, je crois dans le progrès !



Certainly it's not nice but the English sentence is understandable. I even think that by writing a simple series of nouns and adjectives, without coordination between them, we understand the idea: "Metro", "efficient", "fast", "attractiveness", "territory".

And I welcome the passage efficiency admittedly imperfect but impressive all the same google translation, at least from French into English. And anyway it keeps getting better. For driverless metros like google translation, I believe in progress!

Is this a covered bridge, like the ones in Russia and FSU states?

No, it's just the side barriers.

It doesn't really need protection from the above elements as it won't be overlooked by buildings or infrastructure.

Thanks, but the tramway has its own thread.

P.S. Mods, the Africa section in the thread finder is broken.
