Underground chaos this summer

Lots of track renovation works are affecting the Paris rail network this summer. Be particularly careful if you need to fly out of CDG on Aug 12-13-14, as no train at all will be running.

In town, metro line 5 and 7 are severely affected around Gare de L’Est, which should be avoided at all cost. Lines 6 and 12 will be partially closed in August. Tramway T3 will also stop most of the summer and replaced by a bus service.

RER A continues its summer works, this time in the West, and after 10pm elsewhere. As always, RER C is suspended in the city until Aug 26.

Line 14 is completely suspended July 29-Aug 11, as tests are being performed to extend it to the Orly Airport.

Some good news finally, RER E is now entering its testing phase between Haussmann and Nanterre. In about a year, Gare du Nord and La Defense will be about 10 minutes apart. A Revolution !!
