Magenta RER Station Connected to Gare De L'Est (SNCF)?

Are the two stations connected internally? We need to get to the TGV departing platforms and metro directions at http://www.ratp.fr/itineraires/en suggests final walk on surface streets. How long would this walk from RER at Magenta take to get to the TGV platforms at Gare De L'Est station?

I assume that you are arrive on the RER E and want to take the TGV from Gare de l´Est. You can walk underground or on the streets to the TGV station. It won´t take 5 minutes either way.

If you do use the underground passageway, the TGVs leave from the ground level of Gare de l´Est. Here is a layout of the station:

There is no connection to Gare de l'Est -- you must use the surface streets from Magenta/Gare du Nord to get there. I have no idea what Sarastro is talking about.

If some day the project for the CDG Express rail link is unfrozen, I'm sure they will finally connect Magenta to Gare de l'Est, which is precisely the reason why they gave it a different name from Gare du Nord. The CDG Express would be a dedicated rail line non stop to the airport, with airline check-in counters located at Gare de l'Est, the same as the system in Hong Kong.

It's an easy walk -- 10 minutes if you dawdle.

There is no underground connection that I've ever found.
