Val d'Europe is Europe's leading tourist destination, thanks to the attractiveness of Disneyland Paris and Marne-la-Vallée HSL station. It is also a strategic hub in the eastern part of the Paris region, covering seven towns including Coupvray. As part of the project to partially double the width of Robert Schuman Avenue in Coupvray, Marne-la-Vallée's local Planning and Development Authority épaMARNE has recently appointed EiffageÉnergie Systèmes' teams to carry out public lighting work on this major road.
Robert Schuman Avenue links Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe, Sierra Lodge, Yosemite Lodge, Disney’s Sequoia Lodge and the Disney Newport Bay Club, and is frequently used by visitors to Disneyland Paris, and Marne-la-Vallée HSL/RER suburban train station passengers who choose to stop off at one of the hotel complexes installed in Coupvray. In order to ease traffic flow on the outskirts of the theme park, épaMarne has taken charge of doubling the width of the avenue. The planning and development authority has asked Eiffage Energie Systèmes to update the avenue's existing facilities to suit the new configuration.
Our teams are to roll out 1,280 linear metres of cables in order to commission the high-voltage network required to light Robert Schuman Avenue. They will then put up 44 street lights and install three dynamic crossroads systems in order to control the flow of vehicles using traffic lights. Our teams will also install three voltage transformers (5,500 volts / 220 volts) to supply the whole site.
The works began on 19 February 2018 and are scheduled until next October.
