The system, which has been dubbed Nexteo by SNCF, will be installed on the existing Rosa Parks - Hausmann-Saint Lazare section and the 8km underground extension to La Défense and Nanterre-la-Folie, which is due to open in 2020.

Ridership on Line E is expected to increase from 370,000 (including Poissy - Mantes-la-Jolie Line J services, which will be merged into Line E) to 620,000 with the completion of the western extension from Nanterre-la-Folie to Mantes-la-Jolie in 2022.

However, there will still be an imbalance in traffic levels between eastern and western sections of the line. Up to six trains per direction per hour will operate on the western section with up to 16 trains per direction per hour on the line east of Rosa Parks, which comprises branches to Tournan and Chelles Villiers.
