Priority to the suburb is. The Minister of the city, Maurice Leroy, and the Socialist President of the Regional Council of Ile-de-France announced Tuesday evening that they had decided to incorporate into the transport network of the Grand Paris, "the CRA is" between Noisy-Champs and Carrefour Pleyel (Ouen). Assessed at EUR 2 billion, this line was in the State of option in the agreement they had concluded on January 26, putting end to months of opposition on the route of the automatic metro which must surround the capital for 2025.
An accelerated procedure of public debate must allow it to include "without legal risk", says Maurice Leroy, the final path which must be sealed on 26 May next by the Supervisory Board of the society of the great Paris (GSP) to build the network. The State and the region will agree on financing so that work can start more quickly, two to three years, almost at the same time as the section automatic metro serving the Val-de-Marne which studies are by far the most advanced. The possible extension of this arc is at Nanterre-Prefecture and the link Val-de-Fontenay-Champigny-Le Plant are repulsed after 2025.
The region and the Government also fell on the utility of Saclay. It will be finally a light automatic metro air circulating between Orly and Versailles-Chantiers and serving Eleven stations. The Act on the Paris Grand, imposing a subway automatic on this line, is so respected, but take expected transit time will certainly require to develop a new material.
The Paris Saclay binding based essentially by correspondence to Orly, on line 14 of the Paris métro. This will be indeed indeed extended to Orly to the South and Carrefour Pleyel to the North. It will be in correspondence with the future line of Metro Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle-Rueil. Decided Saint years ago to relieve Town Hall - 13 - Saint - Ouen of line 14 will be launched in priority. But it is more expected, as wished by the RATP, to extend the line beyond Pleyel, Roissy airport.
In the ten days remaining before the meeting of the Supervisory Board of the GSP, the State and the region will still have to agree on the role of the Union of the transport of Ile-de-France in the device, in particular on the mastery of some work. Should mainly to decide the fate of the optional stations of La Courneuve, Mesnil-Amelot, White House, Nanterre Place-of-the-ball and Chevilly three-Commons. "We believe that to throw these options," says Jean-Paul Huchon.
Transport technicians feared that the savings needed to fund the additions to the network result in reserves insufficient capacity and operational difficulties. Any delay in the closure of the bypasses such decrease their effectiveness to decongest the existing network.
Similarly, the multiplication of matches may insoluble problems. Now reintroduced the break to Carrefour Pleyel between Roissy and Paris should multiply by three to more than 60, the proportion of travellers in correspondence. There are currently 25 to Châtelet - Les Halles, not without difficulties.
Another uncertainty: the service of the defence, which is not yet fixed, could multiply sensitive matches.
