Design contract on Grand Paris Express depot awarded

Société du Grand Paris selected Sweco to elaborate the detailed design work and project management of the maintenance complex for Line 15 East of the Grand Paris Express metro network. The order value for Sweco is approximately SEK 100 million (EUR 10.4 million). The line connects suburbs from Saint-Denis Pleyel to Champigny through a new ring line around Paris.
The complex will connect with the national railway network and it consists of facilities for depot and infrastructure maintenance. It will also serve as support for the neighbouring lines.
“The maintenance complex for Line 15 East is a significant component of the Grand Paris Express project. We are glad that Société du Grand Paris yet again chooses our expertise and commitment to improve commuting for Paris’ travellers,” said Erwin Malcorps, Managing Director of Sweco Belgium.
With 200 km of new underground metro lines and 68 new stations, the Grand Paris Express in Paris is the largest metro project in Europe. The objective is to support urban expansion and make travelling more efficient, reduce traffic, and improve the city´s air quality.
Line 15 East will be opened in stages from 2025 to 2030.
Sweco won another contract within Grand Paris Express project, in 2016, for overall project management and detailed civil design of Line 17, a new 20-km metro line with five new stations.
