France – Paris – 2013

Charles de Gaulle-Étoile Inclined elevators

The inclined elevator of the Charles de Gaulle-Étoile station, in the heart of western Paris, was installed to facilitate the connection between the stations of metro lines 1 and 6 and the RER A regional express network line station, the central thoroughfare for transport in Paris, connecting east to west in the Paris region.

Le projet

This inclined elevator was installed between the existing staircases and escalators at the Charles de Gaulle-Étoile RER station to make the RATP (autonomous Parisian transportation administration) station accessible to persons with reduced mobility (in particular wheelchair users, the elderly, people with luggage or pushchairs).

Inclined elevator technology makes it possible to add a suitable mobility solution to an already dense network of stairs and escalators.

POMA, innovation

for the project

2nd RATP project in 2014

The inclined elevator of the Châtelet-Les Halles station also plays a key role in enabling access for persons with reduced mobility and links up with the Châtelet-Les Halles RATP hub between Les Halles (including the Les Halles forum), the Châtelet-Les Halles RER hub and the Châtelet station metro lines.

Accessibility

Its installation alongside escalators and staircases multiplies the available options for getting around while improving a more fluid flow of passengers.
