A 130 km metro line will reunite Paris as the city is divided by a highway. Paris municipality will allow building of  20 skyscrapers in the centre of the city and every year around 70000 new flats will be built into the city to provide for the housing demand. The population of the city centre is now 2,5 million reaching 12 million with the suburbs. With the new projects Paris will reach a population of 23 million people.

A new forest will be created near De Gaulle Airport and one of the biggest technology parks of the world will be built near Saclay.
