According to Ruedi Baur, designer and scenographer for the exhibition’s display, “from the public square under the banner of the “MAC VAL Station” we are welcomed to immerse in the history of the mapping of the territory of the “Greater Paris”, drawing from the center to its suburbs. A large animated table deals with the topography while providing a new mind map as subway lines 15, 16, 17 and 18 will succeed in establishing. Along with this, an interactive wall allows visitors to simulate and understand how to move in the network of public transport in 2020 and then in 2030.
The exhibition will take place along with a series of programmed visits and activities for a further dissemination of the project. In addition to the traditional visiting guides (audioguide and exhibition guide), various highlights will be offered: visits for all audiences to see the exhibition, visits on themes of the Grand Paris Express, recreational visits for children and families, multisensory tours for persons with disabilities ; workshops for children and adults on the Grand Paris Express and its territories…
The Grand Paris Express and Line 15 South project 200 km of lines and 68 stations will form the network of the Grand Paris Express by 2030. To control this unique and unconventional project, Société du Grand Paris is in charge of designing and building the future subway.
Two lines of the existing network and four new lines of automatic metro will link the territories of Greater Paris. More than a transportation development project, the Grand Paris Express carries unprecedented urban, social and cultural transformations.
The Southern Line 15 will be the first section of the Grand Paris Express to be commissioned in late 2022. It will connect 16 stations of Pont de Sèvres in Noisy -Champs in 35 minutes. It will serve 22 cities and will involve more than 1 million inhabitants.
