Grand Paris Express

The planned network of the Grand Paris Express

Grand Paris Express is a project of new rapid transit lines to be created in the île-de-France region, in France. The work could begin in 2014, with the first line opening between Pont de Sèvres Métro station and Gare de Noisy - Champs RER A station around 2020. This line was first proposed in the project Orbival, then integrated into the Arc Express project.

Proposed Lines

The project comprises four new lines, plus the extension of two existing lines (11 and 14). Originally, it was conceived that the new lines would be known by color (Red Line, Orange Line, Green Line, etc.). This changed in 2013 to continue the numbering convention that the RATP utilizes and will comprise new lines 15, 16, 17, 18.

Rolling stock

As of March 2013, the rolling stock of the Grand Paris Express lines will be the following:

  • for lines 11 and 14, the MP 14
  • for lines 15, 16 and 17 a new automated material, width 2.80 m on steel wheels and powered by overhead line
  • for line 18, a new automated material, width 2.45 m on steel wheels and powered by third rail
