Commissioned in 1998, the Paris Line 14 is the first unattended driverless high-capacity metro line in the world. Following its extension to northern Paris, work is now underway to connect it to Orly international airport in the south.
Thanks to RATP Group’s solid experience and strong partnerships with Siemens mobility and WeBuild on this southern section of the line connecting Pont de Rungis station with Orly airport (including the construction of the Morangis maintenance and stabling depot), this new world-class standard for driverless metro will be ready in time for the Paris Olympic Games 2024!
Line 14 will be the backbone of the Grand Paris Express rail network and will transport one million passengers per day.
RATP Dev Australia is excited to bring its expertise on complex line extensions and world-class automated metro operations to Australia.
