Lines 16 and 17: installation of the platform screen doors has started

Core drilling of platforms on lines 16 and 17

The Portalp Railway team has begun installing the platform screen doors on lines 16 and 17 of the Paris metro!

The work starts with coring the platforms of the future Saint-Denis-Pleyel terminus station. This first stage is essential for the installation of the platform screen doors, as it involves drilling through the concrete of the platform nosings at the points where the posts will be fixed. The installation of thresholds, leaves and aesthetic covers will complete our on-site activities.

The Saint-Denis-Pleyel station will welcome 250,000 passengers a day, making it the largest station in the Grand Paris Express network. In this context, our platform screen doors need to be both solid and reliable, to facilitate this large flow of passengers and guarantee their safety.

As a reminder, Portalp, in a consortium with Equans, was chosen by the Société du Grand Paris to design, produce and install 1,800 linear meters of platform facades on lines 16 and 17.
