Placing the platform doors, is that done without any moment of reduced service?

I believe they are done without a substantial interruption in service.

Minato, can you confirm?

my guess would be that it is done at night when the lines do not run (so in the 1am-5am timespan) which is also used for maintenance (and for urbexers to go to the abandoned stations and explore the raccords)

Exactly platform doors are installed during the night. They placed a few panels every night.
Platform doors can work without putting all the pannel.
Work are now over because all the planned platform doors have been installed.

There are been some exception for the line 1, where they closed a part of the line during some week-ends to heightening of the platforms of some station.

Hi guys.

Do anyone happen to have data on the length (I mean in time, not distance) between stations? I'm looking for the longest and shortest lengths.

Good candidates I think are Stalingrad/GDN, GDL/Châtelet, GDL/Bastille. And Opera/Havre-Caumartin and Cluny/Maubert.

Thank you!

I have longest in distance but in time, I don't know and I don't have any data.
In my opinion the longest, in time, is Bobigny Pablo Picasso to Bobigny-Pantin - Raymond Queneau on line 5.

For the shortest, it is difficult, there are already many debate about what is the shortest interstation in distance.

But through that stretch, the trains tend to go max speed (80 kph) right?

The max speed on MF67 is 70km/h and as Bobigny Pablo Picasso is the terminal station, trains tend to slow down before arriving.
It is better to wrote Bobigny-Pantin - Raymond Queneau to Bobigny Pablo Picasso than the oposite way.

Longer than Chatelet - Gare de Lyon on line 14??? Not sure...

In distance, the Châtelet - GDL is longer but maybe not in time as the line 14 run faster than the line 5.

6 will be converted eventually, according to what is on the French Wiki. Line 7 & 13 are also planned for automated conversion in the future.

Perhaps Line 13 may be done next if not Line 4, since PSDs are gradually being installed (1st phase being done).

That was to be somewhat of the plan, according to the French Wiki. Line 4 was to be converted once Line 1 was complete and the cascading of trains concluded. But costs have delayed the conversion indefinitely. We may not see Line 4 being converted for 5 to 10 years.
