Construction in Épinay-sur-Seine





With the tramway and the construction of a new mall, the center of Épinay-sur-Seine is completely under the work.

The network is centered around Athis-Mons, a southeastern outer suburb in the south of Orly airport.
The picture are in Juvisy, a major suburban train station of the southeastern outer suburb located south of Athis-Mons.

I have a question related to the T3a/b inauguration:
-Wouldn't it make sense to extend the tramways 3a and 3b from Porte de Vincennes to Nation, in order to connect with RER A?
I think that it would be quite simple (just using the existing sidewalk) and usefull for people coming from the East of Paris who use RER A.

Especially having the tram platform next to the suburban train platforms.
RER station ins Paris are mostly quite dark, and I think that is because the ceilings are black.
The station of T2 in your photo is dark because of that same reason.

Note taht it isn't the RER station but the suburban train station with train comming form Saint Lazare terminal (PCentral Paris), Versailles, Saint-Quentin en Yvelines (Transilien L and U).
La Défense is pretty well connected the southwestern suburbs.

At Nation, the tram station would be a bit too far of the RER station entrances because of two columns the tram could not be closer.

Still, it could end right before the columns, within 100 something meters of the metro/RER entrance.

More like 250m-300m (if the reversal is before the station) with several avenues to cross.
Without forgetting that this section will be very expensive, there is two metro tunnel just under Avenue du Trones (line 1 and 2).
To build a tram above old metro tunnel , we must strengthen the tunnels.
This tram is already very expensive and this section will add even more to this price.

Between Porte de Vincennes and Nation, there is already the line 1 of the metro.

How about new stock for T1? The extension is quite long and i think they need extra trams veside of the original TFS2-trams. Are there already second hand trams from.Rouen?

The RATP has several extra TFS trams, the former rolling stock of the T2.

Opening of the section Les Courtilles - Gare de Saint Denis
While the extension opened to passengers this thursday, the official inauguration will be this week end.

4.9km and 10 new station
The T1 is now 17 km long with 36 station


Unlike the other parisians tram lines, there are two short sections where the T1 shares tracks with the car traffic.
One in the Ile-Saint-Denis, and the second in the town center of Gennevilliers.

Paris opens light rail line T1 extension
Written by Keith Barrow, Friday, November 16, 2012

THE 4.9km western extension of Paris light rail line T1 from Saint Denis to Asnières Gennevilliers Les Courtilles opened on November 15.

Construction began in 2008 on the €150m extension which has 10 stations, including interchanges with RER Line D at Saint Denis, RER Line C at Gennevilliers, and Metro Line 13 at Les Courtilles.
The journey time between Saint Denis and Les Courtilles is 17 minutes, and services operate at minimum intervals of four minutes during peak periods.
A further 8km eastern extension is planned, which will take trams from Noisy-le-Sec to Romainville and Montreuil, terminating at an interchange with RER Line A at Val-de-Fontenay. Paris Transport Authority (RATP) will procure 15 additional low-floor LRVs to provide the additional capacity required for the €400m extension, which is due to be completed in 2016.

La Défense
With the opening of the extension, there been some changes at this station.
This station is not anymore the terminal stop and traffic will grow (La Defense is already the busiest tram stop), with its previous configuration it could not cope with this increase.

Even if this station is still made of a single island platform, the platform was lengthened and trams don't stop anymore at the same position on both sides of the platform.
Tram bound to Pont de Bezons stop on the north side of the platform and tram bound to Porte de Versailles stop on south side.

Here the south side of the platform, the new extended part of the station.



The northern side

New exits have been built
