A partnership approach
The Ile-de-France region’s key public transport players have joined forces around the RER A track replacement project.
The project will be conducted by RATP, along with SNCF and RFF, and submitted to STIF for approval. All parties are fully committed to ensuring that the construction work advances smoothly.
This collaborative effort obviates having numerous simultaneous construction sites underway throughout the Ile-de-France network, and reinforces transport services on key sections of the network depending on passenger flows.
A cross-functional project
The track replacement project also relies on the tight orchestration of RATP’s numerous in-house skills and expertise. The project requires the participation of the maintenance, operations and passenger services departments in order to ensure that construction work advances smoothly and to provide passengers with fluid and precise information.
Focus on key players
As manager of the infrastructure it operates, RATP is responsible for the development, maintenance, renovation and modernisation of its network in order to maintain security and safety conditions, interoperability and the continuity of public service.
STIF is the public transport organising authority for the Ile-de-France region. It designs, organises and finances public transport for all residents in the Ile-de-France region.
SNCF is France’s publically-owned railway responsible for transporting passengers and freight. It manages, operates and maintains the national railway network on behalf of RFF. For the RER A, it operates the two segments that extend from Nanterre-Préfecture to Cergy and to Poissy.
