This is not exactly Metro, but it is the automated shuttle train at CDG airport.

Line 18 flythrough - it seems that this is what will be built first:



For Aeroport Orly station, will SGP use station box, that was reserved for would now be never-built line 7 extension to Orly?

No, the Grand Paris Express station will be built between Terminal Ouest and Terminal Sud.
The space reserved for a metro extension in the past is under the Terminal Sud.

A new big terminal (it is called batiment de jonction in the map) will be build between Terminal Ouest and Terminal Sud (linking both terminals) and the new station for the Grand Paris Express will be directly connected to this new building.

Thanks !

Levallois is a nice place, indeed. Everything seems to be perfect but its mayor

"My" station will probably be Louise Michel (L3).


Porte de Charenton (L8), one of the few stations with 4 tracks :

Bastille (L1), view from the Boulevard de la Bastille (48.851863, 2.369335) :










Warning 56k :


The curve in this station is very tight, and that's the reason why it was not easy to install the PSD's.

New, new... It has been more than a year that this exists (Mid 2014).
December 2013 for the bus time schedule informations.
All the stations should be equipped in 2016.

That is definitely a good thing. They look really swish indeed. I think I saw one being installed when I was in Paris last August.

Fully automatic would cost train operators less, correct? I always wonder if it's a good thing that Europe had it's public transport systems built so early on, since they are now over-crowded and lacking features such as platform doors.

It costs less but the main advantage is the flexibility, you can send a train on the line at any moment.
Line operation is not anymore more dependent on drivers schedules.
