Mairie de Montrouge is a station of the Paris Métro on line 4 situated in Montrouge. The station serves as the southern terminus of Paris Métro Line 4 and is the first new station of Line 4 in almost one hundred years, and is part of a two phase southward extension towards Bagneux.

Conception[edit]

Line 4 was one of a few Metro lines that was never extended beyond the Parisian city limits, though an initial extension towards la Vache-Noire was originally planned (but was never carried out). Nearly a century after the line's opening, construction of the Montrouge extension commenced, with the new Mairie de Montrouge station opening to passengers on 23 March 2013.

Artwork[edit]

This stop is decorated by an artistic creation by Hugues Reip.
