It's less or more projected, but a lot of old metro tunnels, serving as rolling stocks garage, are under Cours de Vincennes, between stations "Porte de Vincennes" and "Nation".

May be they are not strong enough to support easily T3 tram weight (concrete + tracks + vehicles)

Is that famous Saint-Denis which has a glory of being one of the most dangerous and criminal boroughs around Paris?

Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de possibilités d'interconnection!

Speaking of the T2, the user association Plus de trains (very active and successful in their dealings with SNCF and RATP) have started a sister association Plus de trams, dedicated to obtaining improvements in frequency and timetables for the tram network and especially T2, which has reportedly turned into a nightmare in recent times. You can follow them here: https://twitter.com/Plusdetrams

I recently took the T6 from Viroflay to Vélizy. The terminus station is just gorgeous! For the moment I claim #1 spot for it in my top of most beautiful stations that are not métro stations. The architecture is very simple actually, it's just walls made of loose concrete shapes, lighted from bellow and put behind glass.

If you don't remember it:

Looks like (in a more "gigantic" & "cathedral" way) to what they have done in Rouen (Normandy) in the 90s :

the whole thing after Poissy ZAC seems quite an unnecessary large expenditure. That's a huge distance to be covered by a tram parallel to existing railway tracks to serve one final station that is in fact connected to the RER. If the objective is to provide a railway connection to inhabitants from previous stations wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to create a railway station in the last stop in Poissy?

The route after Poissy seems very odd, as it's a tramway why not send it through Achères instead of through a forest?

The station in Achères is supposed to offer connection from/to Cergy-RER A branch. I too think the tram should go on the D30, or at least stop around the Technoparc area, there is a high school there that attracts students from quite far away, and many factories and companies.
It could be that Achères opposes the tram going through its commune, or that the planners only considered the tram going through Poissy because the commune fought for it, and didn't study any alternative from what was originally planned for Achères. Communes in the Grande Couronne tend to be quite bad in urbanism and to protect automobilists...

^ nice vid. I'm happy for the improvement in access this new line will bring for the MACVAL, one of the best cultural institutions of the entire parisian region.
