Good news.

The construction of the tunnel connecting Haussmann Saint-Lazare to the Defense for the RER E will start in September 2015.
The extention of the RER E to Nanterre La Folie will open by 2020 and the section to Mantes la Jolie by 2022.

Nanterre-Université
The widening of the RER A platform seems well underway. The westbound track is installed.

Strike on the RER A after the assault of a driver

Quote:
PARIS - Over a million Parisians faced commuter hell on Thursday when drivers on one of Europe's busiest train lines went on strike after a passenger assaulted one of their colleagues.

There were chaotic scenes at stations across the capital after the RER A line -- which cuts across the city and carries 1.2 million people a day -- was totally stopped.

The strike began the night before when a passenger in Torcy, east of Paris, got his hand stuck in the closing doors and then head-butted the driver when he came to deal with the situation.

Looks a bit like Sâo Paulo.

Hopefully the RER E extension will come soon and make these problems less grave.

Nice lighting. I like how it creates the impression of a series of mechanical ribs down the platform.

The Alstom-Bombardier consortium will supply 10 additional trains for the RER A line in Paris


©ALSTOM Transport / TOMA – C. Sasso

Quote:
12/02/2015

STIF[1] has ordered a further ten MI09 double-deck trains from the Alstom-Bombardier consortium. The total amount of the contract is €150 million, including €95 million for Alstom. This order relates to a purchase option on a contract awarded to the Alstom-Bombardier consortium in 2009. The new trains - which will be delivered during 2017 - will operate on the RER[2] line A, which carries 1.2 million passengers per day, making it the busiest regional line in Europe. The new order aims at strengthening the line's performance by increasing trains capacity and frequencies. It goes along operations that are related to a performance master plan being conducted on the line.

edit: please no reposting of full articles, only one paragraph and a link, thanks.

Define "busy"? Do you mean people per length of track? Passengers per station? Total use?
