IRS4, Paris, 2017
Delegates travelled on a new hybrid bus, courtesy of the Paris transport operator RATP, to its newly modernised Boulogne-Billancourt workshop, which maintains the trains of Paris Metro's Line 9. The workshop, originally opened in 1934, went back into service in June 2015 following three years of refurbishment and modernisation. As a result of the modernisation, Line 9 has operated with nearly 70 five-carriage MF 01 trains since December 2016, providing travellers with improved service.
The 20-kilometre Line 9 is one of the busiest on the Paris metro network, linking 37 stations through the very heart of the city. RATP guided delegates around this vast workshop, which stretches over 14,000 m2 and houses 58 technicians who ensure that the trains run smoothly and efficiently.
Delegates then enjoyed a tour, hosted by French National Railways, SNCF, of 19th-century station, Gare Saint Lazare. The station went through a 15-year, €250 million renovation which was completed in 2012.
The refurbishment has offered larger capacity, greater convenience and improved information to 450,000 daily passengers as well as a significantly higher retail revenue for SNCF. Although travellers now need 25% less time to get to their trains, the 10,000 m² of new retail and service space, offering more than 80 shops and restaurants, mean that they spend 47% more time enjoying this famous station than before the renovation.
