Under the proposals, a 17.5km Line 5 will link Lavérune in the west with Clapiers in the north. The project is expected to cost around €400m and will therefore be implemented in phases, with funding expected to come from local, regional and state sources.

A 1.5km extension of Line 1 from its southern terminus at Odysseum to the new Montpellier-Sud-de-France TGV station is also included in the plan. The €40m project will include the construction of a bridge across the A9 highway.
