Two entrances to Marseille are benefiting from renovation programs: the Gare Saint-Charles, where rail passengers arrive, and the Porte d'Aix, where the A7 highway users arrive.

This entire area covers 16 hectares. The Gare Saint-Charles district began its metamorphosis with the arrival of the Mediterranean TGV.
It is continuing with the renovation of the area around the station and the creation of a multi-modal hub connecting rail, buses, city buses, subways and cars; the creation of Place Victor Hugo connected to the University of Provence; and the beautification of Narvik Square.
For the Porte d'Aix, the biggest change involves the setback to the A7 motorway. By removing traffic, this district is being reborn with a student residence that is soon to be followed by housing, shops, parks and public facilities.
