Is there any decision on what stock the new lines will use?

Châtelet
Installation of the new moving walkways in the corridor between lines 7, 11 and the rest of the station began.




I can't imagine how crowded it will be during during weekday rush hours.

Yeah, but Châtelet is a pretty awful place even at the best of times. A handful of metro stops, tied together by long tunnels, masquerading as one station. I'm "firm on my feet" and I like walking, but THAT place is not for old or infirm people, or for mothers with prams.

Châtelet is the most chaotic place I've ever seen. I'm talking about the deck that gathers the people from all the RER lines, plus those who are passing through it. Every direction you take, you almost smash into someone whose trajectory is diagonally intersecting yours.

Thinking about it, that deck (floor? not sure what's the term) makes me realize that instead of a huge common space, having different stations kept sepparate by tunnels is actually a better idea.

Last July when I visited Paris, I transferred on Chatelet from M14 to M1. It took me over 5 minutes to reach and I had to cross the RER barriers

How does traincongestion occur? I saw it happening on M1 aswel

^ Five minutes is not even the worst, there are even longer exchange times at Châtelet. I always design my travels so that I dont need to take the long exchange paths at Châtelet or Montparnasse. For example I combine 4 with 14 at Châtelet but not 4 with 7, or 12 with 4 Montparnasse but not 13 or 6 with 4. These exchange distances can be perceived from the network maps, from the way they are grouped together.

On this webpage you can book visits to the unerground construction site of the Line 14: http://www.tourisme93.com/visites/fr...tunnelier.html It costs only 5 euro. The next session, for September 30, is all booked but you can subscribe by email to the announcements of the next sessions.

Some pics with which they presumably illustrate previous visits:

What are they actually constructing? I thought that they were creating a new extra entrance for Olympiade, on the corner of Rue de Tolbiac & Rue de Châteaux des Rentiers.

With the extension on the north, they are creating new entrance on several stations of line 14, including Olympiade.

Stations on line 11 will also be renovated with the eastern extension.

^ good job, but let's see how long the spotless white lasts...

Yesterday I passed through Denfert and was struck by how expressive it is in current state, completely chiseled out. They should leave it like that, especially considering that it is the station that serves the Catacombs...
