No, the line 14 don't have the same next trains arrival times panels that the other lines.

We loose the precision, the old one gives the next train arrivals within the tens of seconds.

Screens when traffic is disrupted on one line.
There are orange squares next to the arrival times. (Green for normal traffic and red when traffic is stopped).
You can note that the forecast for the return to normal traffic is outdated.

Château Rouge on line 4 will close for 14 months from May 20, 2016 to July 31 2017.
The heavy work will begin to enlarge the entrance of this station.

They put stickers on line 4's maps.

Quick question. In terms of zoning, will the new lines (and especially lines 14 and 11's extension since those lines are actually within Paris itself) be part of the Zone 1-2 fares ?

I don't know.
I don't think that even authorities know what will be the fares.

No more tiles. Fortunately renovation work should be faster than Oberkampf and walls have been spared by graffities.

Kinda sad NKM didn't win as she was extremely in favour of doing Paris' metro driverless.

The current mayor, Hidalgo, is way behind about this topic.

Metro is managed on Regional level, so the opinion of the Mayor of the City of Paris has a very limited effect of what will be done.

Why aren't the seats placed along the window facing each other?

Impressive. I count at least eight different metro lines: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 13. And there could be one or two that I have overlooked.

Greetings from Karlsruhe, Germany.
The Parisian underground transport system is just fascinating me. I was there last year with a group, but only had about one evening of free time, which I spent zigzagging thorugh the metro network to make as many interchanges as possible. The only line I rode on its full extent was 3bis . This summer I will go to Paris for a week, but this time alone and dedicated to Métro and RER.
I want to explore all the interchange stations and map them afterwards for OpenStreetMap. The current mapping state of the network is just horrible, as you can see at Charles de Gaulle - Etoile. Actually for this particular station I could map some parts today from my chair at home - thanks to various YouTube videos showing transfer ways.
So this is what I got so far:



Zoomed in and out versions aviable here.


Legend:
Brown lines: Tracks and platform edges.
Gray lines: Tunnels for passengers. I did not include the width of the tunnels yet, neither the open rooms, like at the interchange RER - Metro in the south-eastern corner.
Green lines: Steps or escalators.
Blue tinted green lines: Steps or escalators to the surface, position validated through aerial imagery.
White square: Push doors for Exit of fare control
Withe square with black cross: Turnstiles for Entry of fare control
Light blue dots at the end of tunnels/Stairs: No further information available.
Lines are only on the same level and an intersection of tunnels, if the same big yellow point is on both of them!

This is the point where I ask you... Can you help me completing this map?
I have absolutely no idea where the RER station is, most importantly where the platform starts. I don't trust OpenSteetMaps current data, neither the "offical" geographical routes from STIF. Just look at them.
Also, where is this hall? I cannot find it on any other video or image.

Unfortunately I alread know RER A will be shutdown in its central parts in August, when I visit Paris, so I have the fear this part of the station will not be accessible.

By the way: Hopefully they keep up Auber for the super-mega-interchange Saint-Augustin - Opera. Is there any other station or line closure planned in the time of 8th to 12th August?

In advance, thank you for helping!
