Benthem Crouwel Architects was selected by Société du Grand Paris for the design of the new metro station at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. The metro station is part of the prestigious metro line Ligne 17, to be completed in 2030.
The new metro line, Grand Paris Express Ligne 17, is 27 km long and includes nine metro stations, connecting two major airports to the city of Paris. The metro line will serve both Le Bourget Airport and Charles de Gaulle Airport.
The Grand Paris Express Charles de Gaulle T2 station is a new addition to the public transportation network in Greater Paris. It connects the areas of Saint Denis Pleyel and Le Mesnil-Amelot, serving important locations like Le Bourget Airport and the Gonesse Triangle. The station is located in Tremblay-en-France and Le Mesnil-Amelot, between two departments.
The CG2 station is situated in the monumental Terminal 2 building by the French architect Paul Andreu, at Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport, close to other railway stations and transportation facilities. The terminal has a central pathway for people to walk from one end to the other. The station is built into the terminal's structure and can be accessed from the interior pedestrian route. It features a rectangular structure that is designed to blend in with the overall look of the area.
When passing the security gates and entering the station on terminal level, a wide view over the airport is offered. Here you will also find key feature of this station: a battery of 12 elevators, that will transport you - without interruption – to the mezzanine level 35 meters below. While descending, the panorama elevators offer a spectacular view over the atrium that is materialized with smooth architectural concrete. From the mezzanine level you can take the final escalator to the platforms.
The station is well connected to other parts of the airport. Passengers can easily reach Charles de Gaulle VAL and make connections to Terminals 1 and 3. To access the TGV and RER-B trains, passengers need to go to a lower level. The TGV/RER station, buses, shuttles, taxis, and drop-off parking are located on a higher viaduct above the pedestrian route.
The CG2 station at Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport improves transportation connectivity, making it easier for passengers to travel between different parts of the airport and surrounding areas.
