I see that there is still construction around the new Avenue de France but it looks like every quarter of a year there is progress.

BTW, I love the older trains like this one on Line 6. I can't imagine seeing the newer, sleaker trains from Lines 1 or 14 or the ones destined soon for some of the other lines running on elevated lines 6 and 9. Can anyone image a new train model passing through these bridges with their iron work? The older trains have come to symbolize Paris for some time now like the old trains of the NYC subway have. I'm glad Paris has not replaced all its lines with new trains like many Southern European cities seem to have done in large part. I do like new trains but a mix is always good for good old-times sake...memories, nostalgia, identity. Maybe a city like Madrid never made its metro a major icon like NYC, London and Paris have so having put all new trains did not have an effect...not sure. Put doing that to elevated lines 6 and 9 of the Paris metro would be bad, I think.

Actually this the last decade for these trains.
MP73 should be remplaced by MP09 actually planned.

The line 9 is underground I think that you confused with the line 2.
The line 2 have new train under in production called MF2000.
The first one already run in this line, so this this the last years of the old MF67 trains.

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/MF_2000

The MP09 should have the same design exepted being rubber tired.
