Metro, RER: these stations which will be closed for the Ascension Bridge

Next week is the Great Ascension Bridge, with Wednesday May 8 as a bonus. A boon for those going on vacation, a possible hassle for Parisians who will be at work. Difficulties will be expected in transport From Monday, several metro and RER stations will not be accessible. Metro line 7 will be closed between La Courneuve-8 May 1945 and Gare de l’Est, between May 6 and 12 inclusive, in the direction of Mairie d’Ivry and Villejuif. “Gare de l’Est will therefore become the temporary terminus of the line for these seven days,” specifies the RATP on X (formerly Twitter). The reason ? The renewal of a switchgear switch at Porte de la Villette station which allows trains to change direction and which are reaching the end of their life.

The RATP, which expects major difficulties on Monday and Tuesday, is considering a significant postponement on lines 4 or 5 of the metro, the RER B - to reach the Gare du Nord - or the T3b tramway. To absorb the heavy traffic on these lines, the number of metros will be increased. In addition, a replacement bus will be made available to users in both directions between the La Courneuve -8 May 1945 and Stalingrad stations, during the work.

Regulars on line 7 will not be the only ones penalized. Those who take line 14 will also have to be patient. But they are used to it because, for several months, the line has been regularly closed due to extension work. Next week, this will be the case from May 8 to 12 inclusive, all day.

Difficulties are also expected on the RER A. From May 8 to 12, it will be cut in its western part because the RATP is also changing four track switches between Rueil-Malmaison and Chatou-Croissy. Traffic will be completely interrupted between Le Vésinet - Center and Rueil-Malmaison. And from Saint-Germain or Le Vésinet, users will have to take a substitute bus to find the line towards Paris. A replacement shuttle will run during RER A opening hours, at a frequency of between two and ten minutes. The RATP plans to extend the journey time by around 30 minutes. And this is nothing compared to the difficulties expected next month, particularly on line 1, three of which stations - Tuileries, Concorde and Champs-Élysées Clemenceau - will be closed.
