In short

Owner: Société des grands projets
Contractor in charge of the works: Intencités15, a consortium made up of Vinci Construction and Vinci Energies
Start of works: 2024
Entry into service: by 2030
Line 15, western section: Pont de Sèvres < > Saint-Denis Pleyel
Station architect: JFS Architectes

Transport services in the Groues district will be completed by line 15 of the Grand Paris Express by 2030. At the crossroads of Rue d'Arras and Loop Verte, two of the main thoroughfares in the new Les Groues district, Nanterre-La-Folie station will feature sober architecture that is open to the city and blends seamlessly into its surroundings. It will eventually be topped by a building with distinct functions. Its interior layout, with a generously proportioned reception hall, will anticipate the flows associated with the RER E connection and access to all bus lines. From the RER E platforms, passengers will be able to either use the footbridge over the tracks to get to line 15, or use the connecting subway (built by SNCF).

Line 15, the metro around Paris

Along its 22.4 km length, the western section of line 15 will pass through 14 municipalities and affect 800,000 inhabitants. It will enhance the development of the economic hub of western Paris, in particular La Défense, Europe's leading business district, by linking it to other strategic points in Greater Paris, such as Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Le Bourget airports. Users will thus benefit from new travel options, complemented by connections with the other lines of the Grand Paris Express and the Transilien, RER, metro and tramway lines. By 2030, together with lines 15 South and 15 East, it will form a 75-kilometre ring road around the capital.

Grand Paris Express, the new fast, automatic metro system

The Grand Paris Express is a development and transport project designed to make it easier to travel from suburb to suburb, without going through Paris. This project will contribute to the transformation of the Île-de-France region. Four new lines will come into service by 2030 (15, 16, 17 and 18), line 14 will be extended to the north and south of Paris and 68 new stations will be created.

The new automatic metro will meet passengers' need for reliability. Depending on the line, trains will arrive at stations every 2 to 3 minutes on average. Line 15 will link Nanterre-La-Folie station to Pont-de-Sèvres in 11 minutes instead of the current 36.

**How will passengers benefit?

  • Significantly improved journey times
  • High frequency, with a train every 2 to 3 minutes on average.
  • Several intermodal connections with metro lines 1, 9 and 13, tramway lines T1 and T2, Transilien trains J, L and U, and RER lines A, C, D and E.
  • Quicker, easier access to medical, cultural and economic facilities
  • Easier travel on desaturated transport
  • Improvements around stations to make it easier to cycle to the metro.
A total of 130 universities and colleges, 408 health establishments and 656 cultural venues are within a 10-minute walk of the future stations of the Grand Parsi Express.
