Paris Metro - Extension of Line 14 South

Name of Project:
Paris Metro - Extension of Line 14 South


Country:
France

Client:
Régie autonome des transports parisiens (RATP)

Total value:
€ 203 million

The contract includes the extension of a Paris metro line, to improve connections between the city and the Orly airport, located south of the French capital.

The contract, awarded to Salini Impregilo and its joint-venture partner Nouvelles Générations d’Entrepreneurs (NGE), concerns one of four sections that will make up the 14-kilometre extension of Line 14 South to the airport. On Lot GC04, Salini Impregilo, and NGE will excavate a 4.1-kilometre tunnel from Pont de Rungis station to the site of a new station at Orly. 

The extended line will improve connections and travel times between Orly and the city by linking the airport to Line 18 of the Paris metro and a new one to be called Line 15.

It marks not only the Group’s return to France 20 years since it worked on the city’s Est-Ouest Liaison Express (EOLE), but also its entry into the Grand Paris Express, a massive project that will expand the city’s public transport network to the periphery by 2030.
