MY XXL LINE A !

nbre voyageurs

 

Due to its success, the current capacity of Métro line A, which went into service in 1993, no longer meets the demand during peak travel times. The line therefore needs modernising to improve traveller comfort and safety.

 

The platforms are therefore being extended in four stations in order to accommodate 52-metre trains: Mermoz, Fontaine Lestang, Patte d’Oie and Basso Cambo, and improvements are planned in all 18 stations on Métro line A. The platforms in the Jean Jaurès station will also be extended and passenger flows will be reorganised to improve pedestrian traffic and the connection with Métro line B.

ON BUSES

The bus driver can sell you a ticket when you board the bus. These tickets cost €2 per trip. Due to the number of people travelling on buses during the summer renovation works, we would ask you to use a different solution to buy your tickets whenever possible.

MAJOR RENOVATION AND CONSTRUCTION WORK

  1. 1 -

    BASSO CAMBO GARAGE-WORKSHOP

    To operate Line A with 52-metre trains the Basso Cambo garage-workshop will have to be adapted.

  2. 2 -

    BASSO CAMBO STATION

    The platforms of this open-air station will be extended to allow for 52-metre trains.

  3. 3 -

    STATIONS MERMOZ, PATTE D’OIE, FONTAINE LESTANG

    The structure of these three stations does not currently accommodate 52 -metre trains; this will require extending underground civil engineering structures.  The smoke extraction system and emergency exits will also be brought into compliance.

  4. 4 -

    ESQUIROL STATION

      The remaining work required to allow this station to operate with 52-metre platforms involves:

    • extending the platform façades,
    • building emergency exits,
    • bringing the smoke extraction system into compliance.
  5. 5 -

    STATION JEAN JAURÈS

      The work to be carried out involves:

    • extending the platforms of Line A to 52 metres,
    • reorganising  traveler-traffic flow to avoid saturation, in particular by improving the exchange links between the Line A and Line B.
 

ALL THE OTHER STATIONS already have 52-metre platforms. The adjustments concern non-structural work, such as fixtures and fittings, the compliance of the smoke extraction system, and the creation of additional emergency exits, if necessary.
