Graffiti is a part of urban culture and is here to stay.

I think it adds character...clean and and polished is sterile and boring.

Yikes, design nightmare? Or was that the ONLY way the station could be built?

In fact, if you look on Google Maps (for example !) "place de la Bastille Paris", you will see many things who explain this :
- on the south, there is a marina (you can easily see the station of line M1).
- on the north, under the "boulevard Richard Lenoir" and the place, there is a channel which allow to go to the north-eastern city.

So there was 2 ways to build the station :
- under the channel, but this was impossible because it had need to close the channel in 1899, while the refection was planned a few years later. (it was done for construction of line M3)
- under the place but up the channel, but at a cost of hard curves / counter-curves to make the traject : rue Saint-Antoine - south of the place - rue de Lyon. (Just have a look on the map !).

Bastille has curves that'd make Marilyn Monroe jealous. How are they going to overcome this?

Not sure if you have noticed but the sides of the train isn't curved either so it isn't hard at all.

All that is needed is one set of platform doors in a straight line that is parallel to each carriage. At each carriage joint you change the angle to match the stopping location of the next carriage. Sure you do loose some platform space, but there really isn't much you can do about it.

Yeah that looks like a plan.

Most patronising response of the year. Thanks for that.

If there is no issue with it then why was it being discussed in the first place? Also, if it's simple then why is Bastilee being left til the end?

True why is it being discussed? It isn't rocket science, railways have dealt with curved platforms since the begining, putting screens on should not be that hard. The ONLY thing that might cause an issue depending upon the curvature of the platform is platform space will be lost as the straight screen will have to cut across the platform at a tagent.

Maybe they can have multi-panelled doors instead of just two so the pocket that houses the door when it is open is shorter than if it was a single panel to a side, thus shortening the length of screen that must be straight so that there can be more "bends" in the screen to conform to the platform edge. Hope that makes sense.

The CNIL has nothing to say about the cameras in billboards

by Jonathan Keene on April 21, 2010 at 8:17 am

In late 2008, the Paris Metro began to be equipped with high-tech advertising posters. It was the LCD screens on which ads were changing and that incorporated a camera to analyze the comings and goings of people. Associations were then mounted uncommercial niche, and under their pressure, the RATP decided to do not activate the cameras. This did not prevent the Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) to give its opinion on the issue, indulgent.

In practice, the CNIL has studied more generally “devices using mobile phones or collecting video images [that] can now measure the audience of some billboards or measure the use of certain places (malls and airports). The panels of the RATP are obviously concerned but they are not alone.

In an opinion issued Feb. 25 but released only on April 19, the commission, which suggests a “risk tracking,” said he led a technical facility. It concludes that the images captured by the cameras are “neither recorded nor disclosed to third parties, nor even seen by different providers.

As for the data emitted by mobile phones and analyzed for geolocation, they “shall be encrypted irreversible complex was analyzed by the committee, which ensures anonymity.

Only (small) problem: informing passersby. The CNIL considers that it should show up on the presence of cameras and systems for capturing data. “This information should, inter alia, specify the purpose of the device and the identity of its leader,” said the CNIL.

Use of the Regional Council
Ultimately, it is a good report that gives almost complete guarantee the protection of privacy to the billboards of the RATP and the other, with or without cameras. They state, however, they will operate new controls, in order to verify that these devices comply well, in fact, this anonymity.

It is true that one of the fears of “uncommercial” is that the billboards are evolving and ultimately more intrusive, with sending targeted advertisements on mobile phones, for example.

However, to say that these associations do not satisfy the opinion of the CNIL. In a joint statement, resistance to aggression advertising Smile you’re being filmed and Big Brother Awards Committee felt that the replies only “very partial to the questions” raised.
