It’s one of the most enjoyed metro lines in Paris because a part of it is in the open air. It allows us to admire the Eiffel Tower from the metro. And it’s the sixth most used line of the RATP network. I think you’ve guessed, I’m talking about the metro line 6 running from the Charles de Gaulle Etoile station and the Nation station.
If you’re used to use it for your daily commute, it’s some news not likely to delight you.
As a matter of fact, the RATP plans to conduct several renovations works very soon. Scheduled for July and August 2019 and 2020, these will cause the service to be suspended between the Montparnasse and the Trocadéro stations.
Bad news too for tourists used to take this famous line to go to the Eiffel Tower (Bir-Hakeim station).
About the conducted works, Le Parisien newspaper highlights that it will be about renovating the viaducts while the air metro bridges will be repainted between Passy and Pasteur. The watertightness will be redone as well.
To bring a solution to these future traffic issues, the RATP expects to reveal soon a replacement transportation map including a bus service.
The RATP isn’t the only one to renovate its line since the RER line C also plans a few works in 2019. Meaning that this summer, from July 15 to August 24, 2019 works are planned and no train will run between Avenue Henri Martin, Javel and Austerlitz.
