Let's open Perrache: the end of the "Goldorak" escalators

Two years after construction, the new passenger pavilion was launched by SNCF Gares et Connexion and opened on 22 September 2020. This brings many improvements, including more amenities and convenience for people using the station and improved public transport service to the Confluence district, making it a better connected and more attractive place, with smoother multimodal transport flows.

With direct access to the platforms (J & K), disabled access ramps, ticketing, arrival/departure boards and even a restaurant with a terrace on Place des Archives, the new design provides more convenience and services to the travellers and neighbourhood residents. Read the press release.

The creation of this passenger pavilion is one of the pillars of the #OuvronsPerrache (Let’s Open Up Perrache) project, which, by spring 2021, should also complete:

  • • the extension of tram line T2  to the Hôtel de Région-Montrochet station,
  • • the transformation and pedestrianisation of the West Tunnel (Voûte Ouest).
