A little bit longer than the train but I don't think that the station could not cope with 6 cars MF67.
Around 80m in my opinion.

It's an historical name, like Stalingrad metro station, nothing there to get mad at.

Yes, an historic socialist/communist name, but especially the name of a political alliance: Very nice for the French who live in this area but don't share such political ideas to have their station named after this 'regime'.
Stalingrad on the other hand is the name of the greatest battle of WWII (where none French were involved), a battle which permitted the Allies to win the war in the end. Big difference!

Like I said, they could have at least name this station "Place du Front Populaire" and not just "Front Populaire". It would have been a little bit less chocking for half of the people over here (i.e. the right-wing French).

When is Mairie de Montrouge, on line 4, expected to open?

In the new geographical maps of RATP (http://www.ratp.fr/informer/pdf/orie...secteur&fm=pdf) they already include it. They also incluce tram T5, with a reference - opening in 2013, but there is no time reference for Mairie de Montrouge, which may indicate that its going to be opene soon.

I agree with you 100%, but what do you expect in cities like Aubervilliers and St-Denis that are run by communists? Also, the STIF is headed by a socialist as you know. The Left knows a thing or two about propaganda.

In March 2013.

They added new fare gate.

The northbound platform is no longer a terminus but they haven't added yet the Siel panel.


In the past, the fare gates were closer to the platforms and you could not access to the northbound platform.

What is the status on the Arc Express, both the French and English wikipedia mentions a deadline in 2012 and we are only 1,5 week away from 2013.

Sorry if this question has been answered but i looked a few pages back and could not find any info.

Arc Express and Grand Paris metro project have fusioned as a single project Grand Paris Express, normally the work of the first part (red line south) should begin at the end of 2013 for an opening by 2020.
For financial reasons, some other section of project will be delayed, more like 2030 rather than 2025.

No, in fact it is €30 billion for the Grand Paris Express project but don't forget that we speak of 200 km of new infracture.

It was in 1985, the last time the MF 67 saw a new station.

Thats a bargain. :-)

A quick calculation gives Grand Paris Express a kilometre price of 150 million EURO and the Copenhagen Metro cirkel line a kilometre price of 190 million EURO.

I assume that was when Line 5 was extended?

And I guess that unless new stock is ordered to replace the remaining MF 67, that it may not be the last time???

Well, I don't think that the MF67 of line 12 will be replaced before 2017, so yes.

Come on, you are ashaming yourself.

The Paris metro station Charles de Gaulle is at the 'Place' Charles de Gaulle. What about that?

It could have happened sooner: if I'm not wrong it was considered to transfer one or two mf67f trainsets to line 8 to second the mf77 when the last extension to Créteil was opened.

I thought so. Sadly, I don't think the MP 59 will ever again see another new station since Montrouge has been delayed until March, 2013 and they are almost completely phased out from M4. As for M11, I'm sure they will all be replaced by something else before the extension ever opens.

I think it was mentioned somewhere earlier in this thread too. I also, had heard someplace else that some MF 67F trains could move to M10 also (especially since two or three trains have moved to M12 to supplement the recent extension).

But at the moment, I think all of the trains will be scrapped. I could be wrong.

I kind of wished that one or two MP 59 would have been moved from M4 to M11. But I guess it wasn't deemed as being feasible? Or was it something else I wonder.

EDIT: I also hear now from the Symbioz forums that full automation of M1 is to take place real soon (some people are mentioning this upcoming week, but I cannot see any confirmation of this).

Well, according what I read on Symbioz, today could be the last day with drivers on line 1 and it could be the last day of the MP59 on line 4.
December 21 is maybe the end of the world for these things.
