Eiffage, via its Eiffage Génie Civil subsidiary, leading the consortium comprising Eiffage rail, Razel-Bec, TSO (a subsidiary of NGE) and TSO Caténaires has been awarded by the Société du Grand Paris, the contract for lot 1 of the Grand Paris Express line 16. This line will link Saint-Ouen to Aulnay and Le Bourget, in Seine-Saint-Denis.

The consortium includes the subcontractors Eiffage Fondations, Icop and Capocci as well as partners from engineering firms Sweco and Antea. It will also call upon a large number of SMEs.
This major contract, involving the processing of 700,000 m³ of concrete and the excavation of 2,600,000 m³ of land, will require the use of six tunnel boring machines.
The work will employ more than 1,500 people at its peak and generate nearly 6,000,000 hours of work, 500,000 hours of which will be performed by workers as part of a professional integration measure.
The works involve a 3-month preparation period and will be completed within 6 years.
