Grand Paris Express future Line 15

Grand Paris Express future Line 15 will be the longest of the region’s métro lines, and will be the first to be in service. Encircling Paris, it will connect communes such as Pont de Sèvres, Nanterre, La Défense, Saint-Denis, Rosny-sous-Bois and Champigny-sur-Marne. An additional section will run from Champigny-sur-Marne to Noisy-Champs.

The line will thus benefit Paris’ inner suburbs (Hauts-de-Seine, Val-de-Marne and Seine-Saint-Denis) as well as Marne-la-Vallée.

With 37 stations, Line 15 will offer many interconnection points with the existing and future public transportation networks (métro, RER and tramway) of the Greater Paris Region.

Thanks to improved direct connections, Line 15 will increase the attractiveness of clusters such Life Sciences (Villejuif – Evry), Finance (La Défense), Creation (Saint-Denis – Pleyel) and Sustainable City (Descartes).

Line 15 construction and commissioning stages will span over the entire duration of the Grand Paris Express project, from 2016 to 2030.

Commissioning milestones:
•    2022: Southward section from Pont-de-Sèvres to Noisy-Champs
•    2025: Westward section from Pont-de-Sèvres to Nanterre and Eastward section from Saint-Denis Pleyel to Rosny-Bois Perrier
