This unprecedented driver of economic and technological progress will provide connections between the three Parisian airports, the business districts and the science and technology hubs of the region, enabling people, ideas and goods to circulate more quickly.
By reducing existing spatial inequalities and bridging mobility gaps, the new transport network will make day-to-day life easier for people in the Île-de-France region, and the new development hubs it creates will help to spread prosperity more evenly – as well widening access to the jobs market.
Once the whole network is up and running, the Grand Paris Express will generate an additional €100 billion in GDP and more than 115,000 jobs in addition to those created by the natural growth of the region. Between 250,000 and 400,000 housing units will also be built around the 68 stations of the future metro system.
