Why close the entire line for several consecutive days?

As part of the extension of Line 14 to Orly Airport and Saint-Denis Pleyel, the automatic train control system must be modernized on the existing line and deployed on the extended line to accommodate 1 million passengers per day by 2024.

The line had be closed from Sunday, February 11, to Sunday, February 25, 2024, to test the new generation automatic train control system on the existing line as well as on its extensions to the north and south. The objective is to challenge the new generation system across the entire line for several consecutive days to simulate situations close to the nominal operation of the line and proceed with the technology change. Due to the time required for test setup, these trials cannot be conducted during long nights or weekends. The renewal of the automatic train control system on the existing line is a crucial step for the extension's commissioning in June 2024.

During this period, the line metro symbole metro ligne 13  may experience increased crowding despite additional transportation services. Find below the substitution diagram.
