Société du Grand Paris recently awarded Eiffage, through its subsidiary Eiffage Génie Civil, the consortium leader, and Razel-Bec, the contract for work package T2B of the Grand Paris Express 15 Sud line in Val-de-Marne, which will run between the Bry-Villiers-Champigny and Créteil l’Échat stations.
The contract, worth €795m (of which €435m for Eiffage), involves digging a 7.2km, 8.70m-diameter double-track tunnel, building seven related rail structures between the stations and an additional one for the future connection with the 15 Est line, and building three stations: Bry-Villiers-Champigny, Champigny Centre and Saint-Maur Créteil.
The work will require the use of two TBMs and employ up to 800 people at its peak.
The consortium also includes Eiffage Fondations, Sefi-Intrafor, Icop, Coteg and Capocci (sub-contractors), as well as the partner engineering firms Egis and Tractebel. It will also call upon a large number of SMEs from the department.
Work will begin in April 2017 and take five years to complete.
