Doesn't look that bad to me, it isn't crush-loaded.

I agree -- were the line autonomous, then the qualifier would lie in how many passengers be left behind on the platform

And now I have seen here in this thread the new photos from Nanterre Préfecture and it looks really nice !
So I was wondering Thanks!!
It is still the beginning of the construction, so there is almost nothing to see.
The new station should be completed by 2014.

Nanterre Université.



Here we see a MI84 of the Cergy /Poissy branchs passing above Nanterre Université.
Trains in this direction pass just next to this station but don't serve it.

Is the new station related to the extension of RER E?

No, the RER E will not serve this station.
But a large part of Nanterre, where Nanterre Université and Nanterre La folie (RER E station) are located, will be redeveloped.
It is several million m² of new housing and offices space planned.

The actual station is old and don't fit for purpose and projected growth.

Nanterre Université was build in 1972 as a temporary station before the construction of a new underground station, cancelled later.
So the temporary station is still here.

Which will be the other new stations for the extension of RER E? Am I correct in understanding that the RER E will take over one of the three western branches that currently belongs to RER A?

In fact, no ; the RER E will have as traject :

Haussmann-Saint-Lazare (current terminus, connexions : transilien, RER A, M3, M9, M12, M13, M14)
Porte Maillot (connexions with RER C & M1)
La Défense (many connexions : transilien, RER A, M1, T2)
Nanterre-La Folie
Poissy -> Mantes-la-Jolie

The Poissy branch will remain to RER A...

See a picture there :

I see. Thank you.

I would like to see the RER A split into two lines with a new cross-Paris underground section interconnecting at Place d'Italie, Denfert-Rochereau, Duroc, and Champ de Mars. I envision the new line taking one of the branch lines from RER A at each end.

Massy Palaiseau.
They still haven't opened the new link between the two lines and the old one is in bad shape.

I'm sure there are worse instances. Like M13 @ St Lazarre.

Wanna bet you'll be writing what you've written about the old one about the new one in just one half of the old one's lifetime, only there'll be no replacement to write about?!?

I was told (without any reliable source) that there was some misconceptions in the new link. They want to find some solution that avoid destructing it or doing some heavy work over the tracks...
If somebody have more info, I'm also interested.

3/ Then there's the underground RER B and D station which is very dirty and unsafe (drug dealers/gangs spending their day there).
4/ Eventually, there's the underground RER E station which is very clean, well litten, and pretty.

Overall, Gare du Nord is maybe the most impressive train station in Paris, but it clearly needs a refurbishment. Nearby Gare de l'Est station has been refurbished recently and it's far better now than before.
Where are you from? paris? where did you lived before?

The only thing i recognize is the dealers and all those gangs which create a worry atmosphere

But to say paris is dirty is ridiculous! some parts could be dirty but some others very clean.

You have the same in london when you are around waterloo station which surrounds are awful !

You know big cities like that have dirty parts. London or paris have no equivalent in Europe.

it's so easy to criticize

I love Paris but I have to coincide with this guy.

Let's say it's not dirty as Napoli but certainly it's not clean as Madrid or some central Europe cities.
I'm sure it's not a matter of size.

When in Paris I always prefer riding clean buses rather than dirty metro.
I must recognize it's mostly a materials matter. Most sidewalks and metro "quais" of Paris are build with asphalt and it's impossible to keep it clean.

Many Parisians act like they don't like the city and even pee on metro stations (I've seen it at least 15 times).

Even though, it's the best city in the world.

New branch between Villiers le Bel and Parc des Exposition, this branch is also called Barreau de Gonesse.
According the planning work should begin in 2017 for an opening in 2020.

This link between the RER D and B is made to ease the access to CDG airport and other industrial hubs of northestern outer suburbs by public transport for the people living in the northern outer suburbs.
This branch is 11.4 km, the trip will be 10 minute long instead of 35 by bus. It will be served by a train every 15 minutes.

A new station will open at Gonesse in an area where some urban development are planned.







Blue circle: Main existing areas of economic activity.
Orange circle : Main areas of economic activity in project.
The yellow zones are the possible route for a new high speed train link to CDG airport.
