The Action is part of the 'Grand Paris Express' Global Project (new high capacity metro network, linking up the main centres of the metropolitan area of Paris and Ile de France). It concerned the preparation of preliminary design studies for 3 urban express lines. Line 14 will serve the Gare de Lyon railway station and the new section to the future Orly TGV station, line 17 will serve Le Bourget and Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) and line 18 will serve Massy TGV station and Orly airport. The Action is part of the Atlantic and the North Sea–Mediterranean Corridor.

All activities have been completed according to the initial planning. The new metro lines are expected to be delivered in 2023-2024 in order to be available for the Paris 2024 Olympics Games.

The Global Project will contribute to improved connectivity, reduced travel time and sustainability. It will also improve transport flows between the EU Member States through increased accessibility of two major European airports within Paris.
