Vinci-led consortium wins Grand Paris Express contract

Perspective de la gare Aéroport d'Orly

A Vinci-led consortium, together with Spie Batignolles, has won the contract to build metro Line 14 South on the future Grand Paris Express.

The €400M (£353M) contract consists of the construction of the future Line 14 South between Olympiades (in the 13th arrondissement of Paris) and Orly Airport.

Work includes a 4.6km tunnel between Maison Blanche Paris XIII futur station, a TBM starting shaft at Jean Prouvé, the construction of the new Kremlin Bicêtre Hôpital station and five ventilation and emergency shafts.

Considered the ‘missing link’ between central Paris and Orly Airport, the new Line 14 South will be used by more than 260,000 residents of Paris and the Val de Marne and Essonne départements.

It will provide connections with metro Line 7, Line C of the Paris RER regional express system, Line 7 of the tram system and Lines 15 South and 18 of the Grand Paris Express rapid transit system, and create a fast link between Paris and Orly Airport ready for the 2024 Olympic Games in the city.

The consortium is made up of  Vinci Construction, Dodin Campenon Bernard (consortium leader), Vini Construction Grands Projets, Vinci Construction France, Botte Fondations, Spie Batignolles, Spie Batignolles Génie Civil, and Spie Batignolles Fondations.

The contract is scheduled to last 72 months.

Vinci Construction and Spie Batignolles are currently working on other Parisian major metro projects, including the extension of Lines 4, 12, and 14 of the Paris metro, and Line 15 South of the Grand Paris Express programme.
