A little while I read an interesting article about a huge new concept of the Parisian network: a new connection from the Nord station to La Défense.

The problem is I cannot find it anymore (read it in a French magazine)

It is the planned extention of the RER E.

The central undeground part would link Nanterre la Folie, La Defense, Porte Maillot or Perriere at Haussmann Saint Lazare and Magenta (Gare du Nord, link in 2012 at Gare de L'Est). The underground part between Magenta and Haussmann Saint Lazare was inaugured in 1999.
Outside the underground part the RER E would link Mantes la Jolie in the west at Meaux and Tourman in the east.

Actually the RER E run between Haussman Saint Lazare in the center and Chelles Gournan/Tourman in the east.

I'm afraid that the extension of the RER E to La Défense is in the limbo.
The construction of the first phase was controversial and technical difficulties were numerous. It doesn't bode well for the extension.

For LD , a huge business district of Paris , it can hardly say it has good rail connections in the entire Parisian area.
In my opinion RATP/RER/SNCF needs to start making serious plans.
Strange, a place where tens of thousands people work isn't even connected to the TGV network either , sometimes the way plan makers think and act is beyond imagination

Paris biggest business district (QCA) is also not connected at the TGV, the only main railway station is Saint Lazare (Mainly suburban rail, few intercity lines), in an other way QCA is very well desserved by the metro and RER.

The main transportation hub of QCA. (We only see a small part of QCA in this map)

Haussmann-Saint Lazare Havre-Caumartin Auber Opera

Those automatic doors were tested last year at Invalides. I find them a little oppressive.

I'm thinking that the line 13 must be the second longest after M8.
Is that correct ?

No the line 13 is the longest line but the longest journey is on the line 8 (The line 13 have branchs).

Paris metro is just an ever-expanding metro system, n'est-ce pas? =D

It looks really nice and airy, which is great for an underground station.

The Paris Metro was partial inspiration for the bus tunnel in Seattle... I can see how. The stations all look nice!

Minato,

Why do they build the new stations with tracks in the middle and platforms on each side, like the older Parisian stations? Isn't it more effective with a single platform in the middle and tracks on each side of it?
