Public transport could well become a headache in the coming days in Paris. While lines 5 and 6 of the metro are already partially suspended, line 14 will also undergo a total interruption between Saturday July 29 and August 11. It should be remembered that the automatic line, which connects the Town Hall of Saint-Ouen to Olympiades via the Gare de Lyon, is very strategic for the RATP in order to facilitate the flow of thousands of travelers.

“We must carry out the tests of the trains and new tests of the new system of piloting of the trains”, indicates the company with the Parisian. With a view to extending the line north to Saint-Denis-Pleyel, and south to Orly, 71 new trains should arrive soon. In addition, the software that allows the trains to run automatically must also be replaced for performance and frequency reasons. If a first wave of tests is carried out this summer, users will face the same problem in a few months: another closure is planned for All Saints’ Day for the same reasons. The final inauguration of this work is scheduled for June 2024.
