Grand Paris Express: the cutting wheel of the 2nd TB2 TBM downed

And two! After Camille's in Créteil, it was on the site of the future Bry-Villiers-Champigny station that the cutting wheel of the second tunneling machine of lot T2B of line 15 South of the Grand Paris Express was lowered to the bottom of the shaft.

On site, the assembly of the machine continues, while the civil engineering teams have finished the station floor, leaving all the space for the installation of the necessary installations for its start-up.

The beginning of the excavation, 3 kilometres long until the 1001P Salengro roadwork in Champigny, will take place at the very beginning of 2020.
