LINE 17 OF THE GRAND PARIS EXPRESS: ELEVATED METRO SECTION AWARDED TO A CONSORTIUM LED BY NGE

Société du Grand Paris awarded to a consortium led by NGE with CIMOLAI, its co-contractor in charge of metal structures, the construction contract for the elevated section of line 17, part of the Grand Paris Express, Europe’s most ambitious sustainable mobility project. A major project for the construction Group, which will build a 3km-long viaduct and its first elevated station of the Grand Paris Express: “Parc des Expositions” next to the Villepinte Exhibition Centre.

This project highlights NGE’s Multi-disciplinary services, as it involves several expertise of the Group:

  • Civil engineering (NGE Génie Civil, main contractor),
  • Earthwork and landscaping (GUINTOLI),
  • Foundations (NGE Fondations)
  • Building (NGE Bâtiment) to build the 5km elevated metro section between the cities of Gonesse and Tremblay-en-France, located north of Paris.

CIMOLAI, co-contrator, oversees the metal structures.

Located on the central part of line 17, the project contributes to strengthening the transport offer in major economics hubs in the north of Paris such as “Le Pleyel”, Villepinte Exhibition Centre, Le Bourget airport and Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle international airport. Connecting Saint-Denis-Pleyel and Le Mesnil-Amelot in less than 25 minutes, the line will benefit nearly 565,000 inhabitants.
