M4: Montparnasse-Bienvenüe station will be closed from 27 February to 31 May 2017
The station’s M4 platforms will be closed from 27 February through 31 May 2017.
Here are 3 questions and answers about the M4 platform closure:
1. What kind of construction work is being done?
To prepare for the installation of platform-edge doors on the M4, all of the platform edges must be strengthened and raised. In some M4 stations, the existing platform structure is not adapted to platform-edge doors. The part of the platforms near the tracks must be dismantled and rebuilt. Passengers will not be able to use the platforms for a 3-month period. This is why the station’s M4 platforms will be out of service.
2. Will other stations also be closed?
All of the M4 platforms will need to be adapted before the installation of platform-edge doors. In the years ahead, each of the M4 stations will undergo renovation. In each case, the line will continue to operate normally, with trains passing through the station concerned without stopping.
3. When will the platform-edge doors be installed?
All of the M4 platforms will need to be adapted before the installation of platform-edge doors. For the Montparnasse–Bienvenüe station, platform-edge doors are scheduled to be installed in 2018. In the meantime, the platforms will have a temporary surfacing.
During this period, the M4 will continue to operate normally, with trains passing through the Montparnasse-Bienvenüe station without stopping. The M6, M12 and M13 will continue to operate normally.
The M4 can be accessed either from Vavin or Saint-Placide.
