Villejuif Institut Gustave Roussy Station preparatory works (future line 14 and 15 station, 100 000 passagers expected):



















As a bonus the Villejuif-Aragon station works (line 7 and 15). Not much happening on the surface though, execept that the entire Jean Jaurès street, République avenue, Maxime Gorki boulevard junction is a big mess:

I see the RATP website has a new design and I can't find the ticket price calculator that they used to have, does anyone know if it's still there somewhere?

Normally I would have expected to find it here: https://www.ratp.fr/titres-et-tarifs...-ile-de-france

@ charmers

It took years of off and on chipping away at the system. At first I thought I would never get it done as the system is so large but once I started in earnest, it went by quickly.

The same for the RER, which is split between RATP and SNCF. It took me three or four tries to get that last bit of the Green or D Line to Criel and back because of works on the line, no Sunday service, and so on. It took me a while to figure out there was only one Green train to Criel and back on workdays. There is planty of other service on the line but a lot of it is run by SNCF rather than by the RER. Eventually I got it all sorted out and finally finished that one last section.

Now I'm working on the trams. Once they are finished, I will declare victory and go home.

Installation of new turnstiles


The current turnstiles are located on platforms

I don't like the turnstiles located on platforms in a side platform station because they don't allow to the passengers who get off to the wrong station to reach the mezzanine and to change direction without pay a new ticket.

Those stations were designed at a time where there weren't any need for turnstiles, so I guess compromises have to be made...

So it seems that the platform doors for the automation of line 4 will be higher than the ones on line 1, right ?

I've always found the doors of the line 1 to be very ugly, which is even more upsetting since it totally destroys the efforts they put into the aethetics of some stations such as Louvre-Rivoli or Franklin-Roosevelt.

In our ongoing series about the construction works on line 15 (South), here are the pictures of Les Ardoines station (currently a RER C only station):





















95 000 passengers are expected to use this station once completed. There are plans to build up the area around the station, which is mostly industrial on the river side (east) and made up of single family homes on the other (around 17 000 inhabitants in the vicinity.)

It seems Parisians are more tolerant of disruption during metro construction, which helps driving costs down.

Les Ardoines is a bit in middle of nowhere.
Construction work can use a lot of space there.

The best metro stations are built by the "cut-and-cover" method.

This is irrelevant. Daily maintenance is mandatory especially on such an old network and that can be done only during the night. Moreover, night busses provide a very good service when the metro is closed ; I've had to use them many times to go back from Montparnasse station to my flat in Levallois when my TGV was late (well... every time i took the TGV ).

Judging by his similar spam on the London thread, it seems like he's a New York fanboy* obsessed with this idea of 24h Metro and unable to understand the issues around why it is very hard to do outside of NYC or new systems.

*Though not a New Yorker as he said something in a way that New Yorkers wouldn't say, and would say isn't correct.

As a NYer who has been to Paris, I don't think they need 27/7 service. The city is much smaller than ours and the Noctillien is fast. Just make sure you get on the right one lol.
