Unlike the other extension projects, the whole tunnel was built with Front Populaire station, they now have to build the two remaining stations.
According the schedule, the works have started but I have no information.

The last new the official website give is the construction of service entry for firemen at Aubervilliers in April 2014.

This new entrance is financed out of GPE funds? Or is it done because of renovation of the station as A whole?

Will it be An entrance with escaltors & lifts primarily or will it also fit quite A few stairs?

This is funded with the big renovation of Les Halles area and Châtelet-les-Halles hub.
http://www.parisleshalles.fr/00371
Nothing to do with Grand Paris Express fund.
The renovation of the station is funded at 50% by the City of Paris, at 35% by the Regional autority and at 15% by the RATP.

This entrance will be a big entrance with escalators and lifts as dimlys1994 said.

I'm not sure, but I see 2 lifts, 4 escalators & 2 stairs on streetlevel. Is that correct?

You are correct.
Note that in many new stations, they plan to built pair of elevators instead of just one. If one elevator is out of use (what often happens), the second one could still be used.

Knowing Paris, I think that both elevators would be down at some time!!!

Both elevators not working.. That's an issue almost worldwide.
Both lifts being down(stairs) is also a possibility.
2 elevators is better than 1

Off-Topic:
In my imagination, the 4th -and probably last- metroline in Amsterdam (& region) would be, almost exclusively reachable by elevators/lifts.
With A low-end standard of 3 lifts per stop & A high-end standard of 12 lifts per stop.

The RATP cannot order new MF01 for line 13. MFng will arrive on this line in 2029, or 2034.

Some random pictures from the Parisian metro from me.

Cité Station (line 4) with an MP 89CC train.





Interior of an MP 89CC.





Châtelet (line 4).





Interesting graffiti seen at Nation in place of an advert.





Nation (Line 1) with the platform screen doors and MP05 rolling stock.



More to come at a later date. Hope you like!

The guy who draws cats has some problem, the RATP is suing him.
Note that Paris transportation police has a special team against graffers.

I'm glad that they are caught. I hate it when I see graffitied public transport (it bothers me a lot). That said, at least the cat was drawn in a space for advertisement rather than somewhere that was actually obnoxious (like the side of a train or something). That I can handle a bit more.

Now Rome....... That was a shock to the system after I got there.

The advertising spaces turned into sui-generis artworks (ripped posters, spray etc) can be amazing. My favourites are those from Alésia. Some good ones at Raspail too. Several actual artists have tried to capture the aesthetics of degrading ad spaces but not even come close to the brilliance of the genuine, "public art" ones. I like to think RATP is going along with this phenomenon.

The advertising spaces are damaged because of water infiltration (no poster could be put above), graffers painted above those empty spaces.
The current works on the streets at Alesia are to improve the waterproofing of the station.

I find the state of Raspail quite sad when you think that the station was renovated only few years ago.
The ground of Paris is really full of water.

I have seen your videos of Rome, it is true that Rome is an other level.

In Paris, we can see some graffitis on trains but those trains are rapidly taken out of service to be cleaned. So graffitis don't stay for long.
The most visible vandalism on train are scratchitis on windows.
