Next phase of Grand Paris Express approved
06 Oct 2016



FRANCE: At its meeting on October 5, the board of Ile-de-France transport authority STIF approved the next phase of the Grand Paris Express programme, comprising 29 km of automated metro due to enter service at the end of 2023, expected to cost over €4bn to build.

As well as a 1⋅5 km extension of Line 14 from Mairie de Saint-Ouen to Saint-Denis Pleyel, STIF has given the go-ahead to build a 27 km underground route from Saint-Denis Pleyel to Noisy-Champs with eight intermediate stations. The route from Saint-Denis to Noisy will form Line 16 of the Grand Paris Express network, with the 6 km between Saint-Denis and Le Bourget RER also used by Line 17 from Mairie de Saint-Ouen to Terminal 2 at Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle Airport

Why don't they change the name "Stalingrad" to "St Petersburg"? "Stalingrad" is not only obsolete but so... Sovietoid.

^ err, you're confusing Stalingrad (now Volgograd) with Leningrad (now St Petersburg).

Also, Stalingrad is the name of a certain battle and hence a powerful symbol (of, among others, one of humanity's lowest points).

Indeed, and subway stations are usually named after the streets/plazzas above them, in this case, the "Place de la bataille de Stalingrad".

Regarding line 1 extension, I'm quite amused by the name of the station "Rigollots"

The station bear this name because it's near a square named "Place de la Bataille de Stalingrad" (the french communist party was very powerful in this part of the city ; it still has his headquarters not very far away from this station in a massive building located Place du colonel Fabien... near the station with the same name ; "colonel Fabien" was the alias of a member of the communist resistance during the war).

This name was formerly "Place de Stalingrad" but it was modified in 1993 to make it clear that it refer to the battle, not to the city or to Stalin.


There was a station "Rigollots" in the past... it was the name of a virtual station in the simulator used by the RATP for the formation and the training of the drivers in the 80's ! The real station will be located under a square named after a french scientist.

Le 6 juin 2013, lors de la présentation du contrat de développement territorial « Boucle Nord des Hauts-de-Seine », le projet du prolongement de la ligne 3 du métro est envisagé vers la gare de Bécon-les-Bruyères et sera étudié en 2016. Il est aussi noté qu'un prolongement ultérieur de cette ligne est souhaité (vers La Garenne-Colombes ou Colombes), sans terminus précis[34]. La proposition de réaliser des études à ce sujet fait partie du projet transports de Valérie Pécresse lors de sa campagne pour les élections régionales de 2015

Are you interested abuot this extension? Do you consider it an opportunity for Paris=

It would certainly be an opportunity for me personally, as in the spring I am moving there for the long term. I did think it would be nice to have line 3 go one station further up to Bécon but I thought it would never be taken into consideration, because the Bécon area is already well served by the line L (6 minutes to Saint-Lazare and 4 minutes to La Défense) and the Grand Paris Express line 15 will have a station there too, by 2022 I think.
But the idea to extend line 3 up to Colombes to de-enclavate some of its badly served areas is a good idea, and it puts more weight into it compared to the idea of extending it only up to Bécon. So I hope it happens.

Nice, you 're going to the city of the Games 2024. I 've no doubt about it. Fantastic sport venues and an incredible transport plan (think 5 lines to serve the olympic park in Saint Denis Pleyel).

It's pretty incredible when you think that Saint Denis Pleyel will be served by 5 subway lines.
You have to add that this station will be connected to Saint-Denis de France RER D station.

Even if both stations are close, today it's very long and unpleasant to go from Carrefour Pleyel to Saint-Denis de France RER.
It's 1.5 km walk because there is no direct way to cross the large railway infrastructures there.

How come the transport authorities decided against line 14 taking over one of line 13's branches?

Officially, the authorities said that the service disruption for existing users of the transferred branch would had been too large during the 2 years of new construction.

For political posturing, it also had the drawback that all new infrastructures would have been built inside Paris proper, whereas the politicians that made the decision wanted to favor Seine Saint-Denis.

Trains on line 14 have different voices for announcements. Why are some trains equipped with a male voice?
