Located under the forecourt of the Marseille-Blancarde station in the 4th arrondissement, La Blancarde station is one of the 4 stations that make up the extension of line 1 of the Marseille metro.
The four stations of this extension are designed with ambitious volumes, presenting great free heights above the lateral platforms. Mezzanines and, in some stations, footbridges ensure the transfer of passengers from one platform to another above the tracks.
Discreet, La Blancarde station is very large and bright underground thanks to the white stone walls and the natural light that penetrates. Quite deep, an important descent plunges down to the platforms, connected by a footbridge overhanging the tracks. It is entirely accessible to people with reduced mobility.
An underground parking aera with more than 300 spaces has also been built under the station square.
