Tender loving care. In other words, they need a bit of looking after/renovation.

Yes, constant improvement is great. In this wave of works I'd like to point out the new doors without barriers (helps for those with luggage / carriages), the screens and the new ticket vending machines (that also accept bills not only coins or bank cards) as improvements. But by renovation I was rather thinking of the re-doing of walls, of ground surfaces, of changing/cleaning the ceramic tiles, replacing the furniture etc, the stuff that's always in need of oing again after some time.

On the downside, the new elevators at Porte d'Orléans have yet to be made functional, despite the works having been finalized in spring.

The new exits at Fontenay-sous-Bois (RER A) while completed have remained almost one year closed.

Design contracts awarded for Grand Paris metro
Tuesday, September 16, 2014



SOCIÉTÉ du Grand Paris (SGP), the public organisation responsible for developing the city's 205km orbital express metro network has awarded further contracts for architectural and engineering design work on the initial stages of the €22.6bn system

A consortium of engineers and architects led by Egis Rail and including Tractebel Engineering will carry out project management studies together with civil engineering and architectural design. One of these groups will cover the 22km seven-station section of Line 16 from Noisy le Champs to Le Bourget RER, while the other will be responsible for the 7.5km stretch of Line 17 from St Denis-Pleyel to Le Bourget RER.

In addition, SGP has appointed two architectural firms to develop "iconic" designs for the stations at Le Bourget and Clichy-Montfermeil

About the southern extension of line 4, they have put the demolition permit on the buildings that will be torn down for the main entrance of Verdun Sud station.
This entrance will be located inside a new building.

Looks like an update is forthcoming to the Paris Metro Simulator app. I see giant PSDs here.
