RouteEdit

The line is planned to be 28 kilometres (17 miles) long, from Sartrouville to Noisy-le-Sec, from the northwestern to the northeastern suburbs of Paris. It will have interchanges with existing SNCF Transilien train lines, trams, metro, and Réseau Express Régional (RER) lines A, B, C, D and E.[1] There will be six new stations and eight interchange stations.

ProjectEdit

The project, which was granted approval in May 2008,[2] was planned by Syndicat des transports d'Île-de-France (STIF) but also jointly managed by SNCF and Réseau Ferré de France (RFF).[3]

The parisian tramway line 11 will be built in two phases. First phase, from Epinay-sur-Seine to Le Bourget train/RER stations, opened on June 30, 2017,[4] for a total travel time of 15 minutes, an average speed of around 50 km/h (31 mph) and sections allowing maximum speed of 100 km/h (62 mph).The remaining sections of the route (from Sartrouville train/RER station to Epinay-sur-Seine, and from Le Bourget to Noisy-le-Sec train/RER station) will open by 2023.

The total line's overall cost is estimated to be around €1.5 billion.
