Grand Paris Express contracts awarded
13 Sep 2013

FRANCE: Having approved a budget of €5·3bn in July for the first phase of its ambitious programme to develop a network of automated metro lines around the capital, Société du Grand Paris has now awarded a tranche of design and project management contracts.

Forming part of a sustainable development strategy for the region which will improve access to outlying districts, the Grand Paris Express project envisages the construction of 200 km of new lines and 72 stations, able to carry around 2 million passengers a day.

Technical assistance with electrical and mechanical systems for lines 15, 16 and 17 will be provided by EGIS and SETEC-ITS, including tunnel and station equipment, trackwork, power supplies and communications systems. SGP will be supported in the specification and procurement of rolling stock, automation equipment and the control centres control systems by Systra, working in conjunction with its partner-shareholder RATP.

Systra will also be responsible for systems integration and performance management. It will assist SGP with commissioning successive phases of the network between 2020 and 2030, starting with the southern section of Line 15 between Noisy-Champs and Pont-de-Sèvres.

Two separate contract cover infrastructure design and construction supervision on this initial route. The 21 km southeastern section of Line 15 between Noisy-Champs and Villejuif Louis Aragon, together with eight stations, will be managed by a Systra-led joint venture including architects ANMA Agence Nicolas Michelin Associés, Agence Richez Associés, Agence Valode and Pistre Architects and Atelier d’Architecture King Kong.

Infrastructure on the southwestern section from Villejuif Louis Aragon to Pont de Sèvres plus the two maintenance depots will be the responsibility of another group led by SETEC, including Ingérop and architects Philippe Gazeau, ArThème Associés, Atelier Barani, Périphériques Architectes, Brunet Saunier Architecture and Agence Duthilleul. Separate contracts are to be awarded later this month for design and construction of the stations at Villejuif Institut Gustave Roussy and Noisy Champs.

Both consortia will be responsible to the Artemis grouping of Artelia, Arcadis and B G Ingénieurs Conseil which was appointed by SGP last year as overall project manager.

That's great to hear! Though, I wish it were more trains. Construction at Boulogne makes it difficult though.

I was reading in Symbioz (the MF 67 thread) that some MF 67-E will be retired beginning in November. Is this something that is associated with the shuffling of trains from M9 due to the introduction of the MF 01?

Maybe she herself had been the one who'd committed a crime beforehand, right, coz she ran off in a hurry. Strange that only one person seemed to try to intervene.

I thought so. I was also reading in the MF 01 thread that the ASVA onboard the MF 01, Lines 2 and 5 have been malfunctioning. Why am I not surprised? It seems that the ASVA does not work correctly on any of the lines, based on the YouTube vids I've seen. M13 skips stations, M3 is not much better. Even M4 seems to have problems, no announcement at Cite in one video I've seen. Oh and when the MP 89 reaches St. Michel, the "Mind the Gap" message is very late. The Spanish message goes off right as the doors open.

I think that the bug of ASVA is only software.

@Minato : your MF01 is tagged
