LocationEdit

Line 13 station is located under Place de la République, at the intersection of Avenue Gabriel-Péri, Boulevard Victor-Hugo and Boulevard Jean-Jaurès. That of line 14 is located slightly further north, at the intersection of Boulevard Jean-Jaurès, Rue du Docteur-Bauer and Rue Albert-Dhalenne. The line 13 tunnel is located parallel to and above that of line 14. A short connecting corridor connects the latter's station to the platform of line 13 in the direction of Châtillon.

HistoryEdit

The station opened on 30 June 1952 when the line was extended from Porte de Saint-Ouen to Carrefour Pleyel.

In 2019, according to RATP estimates, the station's annual use was 4,314,548, which places it in 107th position among metro stations for its use.[1]

On the occasion of the opening of the platforms for line 14, the station name bears the caption Région Île-de-France, the headquarters of the Île-de-France regional council located about 200 meters to the west at 2 Rue Simone-Veil, in the Docks de Saint-Ouen eco-district.

Extension of line 14Edit

At the end of 2020, line 14 was extended by 5.9 km from Saint-Lazare to the station.[2] It's therefore the first connection between two Paris metro lines outside the capital.The construction of the Mairie de Saint-Ouen station was entrusted to the Bouygues TP, Solétanche Bachy France, Solétanche Bachy tunnel and CSM Bessac consortium. Structural work began in April 2015.[3] The platforms for line 14 opened on December 14, 2020.[4]

Subsequently, in 2024, line 14 will be extended to Saint-Denis Pleyel.
