Paris awards contract on Tram 9 project

Eurovia, a subsidiary of Vinci, has received a contract from Ile-de-France Mobilités to build the infrastructure for the new Tram 9 line between Porte de Choisy and Orly-Ville in the Greater Paris area. Eurovia will be responsible for facade-to-facade urban development over the new 11.5 km line under a EUR 117 million contract. These works will help to develop multimodal mobility.
Tram 9, the second tramway system in the Val-de-Marne department, will carry about 80,000 passengers per day by 2020 and relieve crowding on the 183 bus line, the busiest in the Greater Paris area. Tram 9 will also strengthen intermodal transport in the Greater Paris area by providing a large number of connections with the area’s various transport systems including the Paris metro, the bus system, the RER C regional light rail line and the future Line 15 of the Grand Paris Express.
Under the contract, specific projects have been designed to make the route safer and more pleasant: widening footpaths, making pedestrian crossing points safer (particularly near schools), and providing a continuous cycle path between Paris and the town of Orly.
The French government, the Ile-de-France region, the Val de Marne department, the city of Paris and the Grand-Orly Seine-Bièvre public institution (EPT) are financing the operation, for which Ile-de-France-Mobilités is programme manager.
