As part of the station platform extension and development work in progress on Toulouse Metro Line A (« My XXL-size Line A”), Eiffage Génie Civil's teams carried out the first operation to remove lining segments from the metro tunnel during the night of Thursday 22 to Friday 23 February.
This first test was successfully carried out in the presence of client Smat and project manager d'Arcadis. Further, more significant operations are scheduled in Mermoz and Fontaine Lestang stations.
The project aims to double platform length in certain stations along Toulouse Metro Line A. These platforms are currently 26 m long but will be extended to 52 m in 2019, providing more room for the trains and twice as much space, comfort, fluidity and attractiveness for travellers.
