That's been my prediction all along, either it will be refurbished and sent to the 11, or retired early. If the latter happens, maybe they'll scrap the MF 88 too.

I think there are genuinely too many acteurs around Parisian transport. Among RATP, STIF and SNCF, I guess it's difficult to recognize who's doing what.

No, it is not that difficult.
STIF is the organizing authority
RATP and SNCF along with Transdev and others are the operators.

Appart being careful about your wallet (pickpockets), you have no special precautions to take.

Just the regular precautions. A full suit of armour should be standard attire. Chainmail is not necessary, but recommended. A set of spare wheels also tends to come in handy. Pocket protectors are all the rage, and have shown their use in the past. Buying tickets is strongly discouraged, as this contains too many inherent risks, which need no further explanation. Enjoying yourself has been outlawed in underground areas since 1910, but lately there has been a crackdown on this offense.

The Société du Grand Paris is to tender for the first major civils contracts for Line 15 South of the Gand Paris Express later this year.

The authority has published a preliminary information notice in the Official Journal of the European Union setting out the scope of the works involved for the planned 33-kilometre underground metro.

Line 15 South will be divided into eight main works contracts for which bidding will begin in the second quarter of 2015 and continue until the second quarter of 2016

Traffic partially halted on 18 and 19 April 2015
Due to modernisation work, no service will be provided on line 5 between Bastille and Place d'Italie. A replacement bus service will operate.

How frequently are buses running there to ensure the replacement? What's the length of the section closed?

The section Bastille to Porte d'Italie is about 3km long.
The section is closed to complete the installation of the new ATO system.

I have no idea of the frequencies of the replacement buses, every 2-5 minutes maybe less because this is the weekend.
For closure in central Paris we don't need to have as many remplacement bus compared to à closure in thé periphery, people usually use other subway connections.

What system will the 5 have? I get confused by all the ATO systems, current and prototype.

OCTYS, it will replace the current system called PA for Pilotage automatique which was installed during the 60s and 70s.

Quai de la Rapée (line 5) - an above ground station :











The bridge is called Pont Morland ; it's located just over the Saint Martin canal. The canal itself is one of the touristic places of Paris and is often shown in french movies.
