Razel-Bec and Eiffage consortium awarded contract to build a section of the southern extension of line 14
Razel-Bec (leader), subsidiary of the Fayat group, in a consortium comprising Eiffage Génie Civil, Sefi-Intrafor, Eiffage Fondations and I.CO.P., has just been awarded the contract by RATP for work package GC03 of the future line 14 Sud which will link the Olympiades metro station and Orly airport, as part of the Grand Paris Express project.
The contract, worth 365 million euros, involves the construction of a 4 kilometre tunnel across the communes of Thiais, Rungis, Chevilly-Larue and L’Haÿ-les-Roses. The contract also involves the civil engineering of 3 stations: Chevilly “Trois-Communes”, M.I.N. Porte de Thiais and Pont de Rungis (provisional names) and 3 ancillary constructions.
The works will involve the installation of 110,000 m³ of concrete and the excavation of 520,000 m³ of land, requiring the use of a tunnel boring machine. 420 persons will be mobilised throughout the works (54 months).
The 14 kilometre long underground Line 14 Sud will serve more than 260,000 inhabitants of Paris, Val-de-Marne and Essonne. Once opened in 2024, it will provide links with line 7 of the metro, the RER C and tramway 7. It will also be connected with lines 15 Sud and 18 of the Grand Paris Express. The extension of line 14 to the south will provide a fast link between Paris and Orly airport, and serve dense residential areas as well as the major hubs and facilities of the metropolis, such as Rungis market and the Institut Gustave Roussy.
