As part of the project to renew the ballasted tracks of the RER A line, this line will be interrupted between the stations of La Défense and Auber in the summer of 2015. In this context and after analysis of the flow-transfer forecast, the RATP spaces of the Saint-Lazare hub will be impacted and certain points of congestion are likely. For this reason, the RATP wanted to have dynamic simulations of passenger journeys, to identify potential points of congestion and to test scenarios designed to improve the flows during the works.
