Construction of the extension of the line 4 to Bagneux will start in 2014.
This extension is 1.9km long with two new stations, the opening is planned for 2019.
The new southern terminal stop of the line 4, Bagneux will be connected with the new line 15.

Note that €5.3 billion for first section of the line 15 (Noisy Champs - Pont de Sèvres) were approved few day ago.

This picture is inside the big loop of Porte de Clignancourt.
This loop is not used to reverse train (unlike Porte d’Orléans in the past) but only to store trains.

It's shocking how in Paris they are building 3 stations for 850mln. euro, while in Bulgaria they will build 19 km with 17 stations for 700mln. euro

It is less than €200 million per km, this could be more expensive.

Well, to be honest, digging a trench in a pile of rubble and throwing some rails in there is a bit cheaper than boring a state of the art tunnel underneath an old, legendary city

Actually, Sofia is way older than Paris.

No doubt it's expensive.

However, not to mention the difference in terms of cost of living, labour cost, purchasing power parity, etc… between Paris and Sofia, there is still a gap between both metro systems.

The two lines of Sofia's metro carry 350,000 persons per day, against 725,000 for Paris' Line 1 alone. And for Paris, we are talking about expanding an existing, driver-less metro line, which might be a bit more difficult…

And I'm not that sure "Sofia is way older than Paris".

Still, have a nice day!

If we go by the establishment of a permanent settlement, Paris - 250 BC, Sofia - 7th century BC.

For consolation, the decade 2020-2030 should be the busiest period for the opening of new sections since at least a century.

M4, Porte d'Orléans

The island quay is being connected to the new exit by covering the now redundant third track. This will also double the space for the departing crowds.
