Work Begins to Construct New Cable Car Service in Paris

Ile-de-France Mobilités has announced that preparatory work is now underway for the construction of the future C1 cable car service, which will connect Créteil to Villeneuve Saint-Georges in the southeast suburbs of Paris.

The service is anticipated to be operational by 2025, allowing passengers to travel between Créteil and Villeneuve Saint-Georges via Limeil-Brévannes and Valenton by air in just 17 minutes.

The cable car will stop at 5 stations along a 4.5-kilometre route: Créteil – Pointe du Lac, Temps Durables, Émile Zola, Émile Combes and Bois Matar.

It will consist of accessible 10-seat cabins and journeys will be fully integrated into the Ile-de-France fare system.

The Cable 1 line is being constructed to overcome the current travel constraints in this area, which has been landlocked and cut off by existing railway and road infrastructure.

Residents in these communities are unable to conveniently use heavy transport networks such as the metro or train, and the local buses are no longer able to respond effectively to the rising transportation demands.

The cable car will therefore provide a reliable service for these Val-de-Marne municipalities in order to improve transportation for more than 20,000 inhabitants in the suburbs of Paris.

Construction started on 26 September at the Créteil-Pointe du Lac metro. The project will initially involve concessionary work to prepare for the elevation of the cable car.
