According to the Symbioz forum, #52 is in service on . The main page is not yet updated.

#23 is (tentatively) scheduled to be transferred on June 20.

Now, I know this may be a bit of a controversial question, but does anyone know of some abandoned bits of the Paris metro that are still accessible from the surface? I'm asking because I'd love to see a few of them, but don't want to risk my life running the tunnels of the live system.

I know that I've read that Porte Molitor & Haxo do not have any form of surface access.

I do not know about the other closed stations...

I've read a fair bit of urbex blogs, so I know that Porte Molitor and Haxo indeed don't have surface access, the only way to reach them is running the tunnels and raccords.
Arsenal and Champ De Mars have a staircase leading to surface level (visible on google street view), but I'm not sure to what extent it is locked down. The turning loop just past Villiers station used to have surface access via an office building (the loop itself is/was filled with old Spragues according to pictures I've seen) but it was locked down at some point in 2010 after somebody decided it would be a bright idea to throw a party down there.

I read about the underground party. I'm sure the RATP & the rest of the Parisian government were furious.

I would have to think that there would be many security cameras in those areas to reduce vandalism.

From what I understand, they have security cameras in the active bits of the métro (ie: all 14 lines + 3bis and 7bis) and the places used as train storage (like Porte Molitor and the Voie Murat leading to it, part of the voie des fêtes leading towards Haxo as well it seems and all the other depots)

The closed stations that were open in the past (Champs de Mars, Arsenal and Saint Martin, expect Croix-Rouge) still have access on the surface.
Anyway the entrances are closed.

Why there are those cables on the ceiling on Saint Placide's corridors?

The station on the video is not Saint Placide but Porte d’Orléans, the southern terminal station of the line 4.
Saint Placide is a small station, it doesn't have long corridor.
Porte d'Orleans is pretty big with a quite many corridor linking to the bus lines that depart from the station.

It is busiest "Porte...." station of Paris

The map doesn't include the bus lines that aren't operated by the RATP. Those buses are express and don't serve the inner suburbs.


The station is under in renovation (for the extension of the line 4 to Mairie de Montrouge), the new cables haven't yet been properly placed or it is the old cables that haven't been removed.

Looks a bit messy though, however since the station is under renovation, that's normal. I've seen a lot worse here in subway stations that are undergoing revovation.

Porte d’Orléans was worse few months ago.
