"The French National Assembly approved plans Tuesday to create "Greater Paris", the bill must now clear the Senate for final approval. The plan would cost 21 billion euros, with the aim of creating closer ties between Paris and its surrounding suburbs.

[The] plan [is] to create a "Greater Paris" with a new 40-station metro line connecting the capital to its gritty suburbs... work on the 130-kilometre (80-mile) metro line could start at the end of 2013 and the new stations could begin opening in 2017."

Any people in the Paris outskirts for whom this is a big thing?

Oddly enough, this didn't make the 20h news tonight in France. I guess we'll hear more about it when it passes the Senate. So far it's only in the English language news that I've seen anything about the idea.
Cheers,
Bev
