In the context of its partnership work programme, Apur has been studying the redevelopment of Porte d’Orleans. The transformation of this city gate into a square, already examined in 2010 during studies on the extension of métro line 4, generates high expectations as a means of resolving the issue of the interface between projects redefining the Departmental Road RD920, supported by the Hauts-de-Seine Departmental Council  (CD92), and Avenue Général Leclerc in Paris. The study took place within the framework of workshops associating all parties involved with the aim of co-constructing the outlines for the future redevelopment. Since November 2018, these workshops, led by Apur with the City of Paris’ Métropole du Grand Paris mission, have brought together the Paris City Transport Authority (RATP), Ile-de-France Transport Organisation (Optiles), Ile-de-France Transport Authority (Île-de-France Mobilités), Hauts-de-Seine Departmental Council, Montrouge Municipal Council, Paris 14th District Municipal Council, and representatives from the City of Paris.

Following on from the first diagnostic task which brought to the fore the priority issue of improving continuity for pedestrians and cyclists, the study concentrated on reorganising the necessary bus hub and putting in place high quality bus routes. In this way a series of scenarios were drawn up exploring the different options which enabled an initial outline to be established that lays the foundations for a transformation process step by step.
