T7 extension to Juvisy-sur-Orge
The T7 extension will link Juvisy-sur-Orge and Athis-Mons.

It addresses several mobility challenges: encourage the use of public transport locally, further improve connections between Essonne and Val-de-Marne, and improve traffic flows between Paris and the southern suburbs.
