I am, that's why I didn't mention to rename the avenue, but only the station, in case you didn't read correctly what I wrote...as usual.
See the difference ?

(especially when this station is not even below the Roosevelt Avenue, but below the Champs Elysées and Avenue Montaigne)

I never once got to see or ride Line 14 when I was in Paris in 2009. Most of my journey was on Line 4. I also took parts of Lines 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 12 (if I can remember it correctly)

Nonetheless, Line 14 is a wonderful line & its stations are magnificent yet modern and expansive. I sure hope that the Montrouge station on Line 4 will be just as such.

Well, it's exactly the same thing that for the bis lines (M7 bis and M3 bis). The project was to send trains of line M10 (originaly line M8) to the tracks of line M9 (or opposite !) sometimes, and to keep segregated lines at other hours. But, finally, this idea was given up. That's why the station Porte Molitor (between those 2 lines) never opened and has no access.

They (re)opened the third walkway of Montparnasse Bienvenue.


If you don't remember in early 2000's they build a high speed walkway that became a failure.
This highseed walkway remind closed for several years and they decided to build a normal walkway instead of it.

It's a return of ten years back in the past.
Before this corridor of Montparnasse was full of LCD screens showing advert, the weather, new movie trailer...

Hmm...I can remember that indeed. So, why did it become a failure then?

Some people had difficulty learning how to keep their balance while getting on and off.

Anyway I miss the modernity that we had before.

Why did they remove the LCDs and such from the station?

Also, any news on the MP 89 move to Line 4?

Porte Molitor is a station with only a platform between 2 tracks. The idea was also to offer transport to the Parc des Princes (the biggest parisian stadium).

Because in Paris, the metro lines must be independant. We can discuss about the (in)conveniant of this system, but it's like that...

But with this protocol the metro is easy to use and easier to manage.
