Line 9 - Overhaul of the train maintenance facility

To host Line 9’s new rolling stock, RATP is completely rebuilding its Boulogne-Billancourt maintenance workshop. The old workshop built in 1934 will be replaced by more functional buildings perfectly geared to the new units.

This latest generation of trains with inter-vehicle gangways has already entered service on Lines 2 and 5, and will gradually be introduced on Line 9 between late 2013 and mid-2016.

By modernising its facilities, RATP is endeavouring to promote a diverse urban environment in order to help retain activities and quality of life in the city. The Boulogne project also incorporates a real estate development on part of the site, with a five-floor residential building being constructed by Logis-Transports and SEDP, both RATP subsidiaries, to provide 78 housing units for active young people.

The entire project, the maintenance workshop and residential building, are scheduled for delivery in 2015.
