Traffic congestion is an important issue in every French major cities.

I find that discussion very interesting. Its almost the same argument we have here about London & the rest of the UK. London it seem gets billions of pounds & lots of power for transport projects yet other cities in the UK get modest tram & metro projects cancelled due to cost & don't even have the power to tell their buses when & where to go!!!

Extensions



Extension length: 1.9 km
Status: under construction since 2005
New stations : 2
Opening planned: 2008
Further extension planned: to 'Port de Gennevilliers' (no date yet)



Extension length: 3.2 km
Status: under construction since June 2006
New stations: 3
Opening planned: 2011 (for 'Mairie de Montrouge')



Extension length: 1.3 km
Status: under construction since Fall 2006
New station: 1
Opening planned: 2010



Extension length: 3 km
Status: works due to start mid-2007
New stations: 3
Opening planned: 2012 (for 'Proudhon-Gardinoux')

So basically Paris Métro network will be 9.4 km longer by 2012. Some 15 km more are currently either under consideration or planned but waiting for funding... A 60-65 km ring line is under consideration as well (more info here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=402849).

That's nice. I din't know so much construction was going on on the Paris network. Looks like the metro will start going into the suburbs more now. What will be the names of the stations on the M13 extension or will they be as on the map?

Love the videos, how fast does the Paris Metro go between stations?

I really want to visit Paris mostly to see if Parisians are as rude as everyone makes out (but I love it in a weird sorta way) and to see what the metro is like. Eiffel Tower? Bleh, there are so many bloody photos of the thing, there really is no point!

In tunnel Paris metro is not very fast for one reason, the lengh of tunnel.
Paris has one of lowest interstation lenght in the world, in some case it can be only 230m, but the average is between 400m and 600m.

The longest interstation (3 km) is between Chatelet and Gare du Lyon in the line 14.

Same with the Tube, the sub surface lines are particularly slow, cause the stations are so close together, though once in the suburbs the trains can really belt it.

I've seen Line 14 and it was incredibly fast! The rubber tyres help with the acceleration/breaking and the stations are further apart.

I don't think we are that rude. Most of Parisian are reasonably friendly. The perception of rudeness is very different depending on the country you come from. A lot of people I know who come from UK, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Israel and Lebanon found Parisian friendly while visitors coming from the US or Asia may have a different opinion because of their cultural differences.
But, for having spend sometime in NYC, It was really not obvious for me that New Yorkers were more polite than Parisians, specially in the subway at peak hours..
Anyway I hope you'll enjoy your time in Paris Iampuking

Usually British people are seen as being overly polite, so everywhere is "rude" to us. If someone barely budges you at rush hour they'll say "sorry" but not loudly enough to attract attention, i've noticed in most countries they don't do this

I guess maybe some are brainwashed into believing that Paris is some romantic city where everyone are passionate lovers and wear the best clothes and eat the best food and if the food isn't good enough that is the biggest insult ever! When it isn't that way.
