Brest Cable Car
Brest - France
France’s first urban cable car

Bouygues Construction and BMF are building France’s first urban cable car in Brest. The new cable car will travel a distance of 450 metres, linking the two banks of the Penfeld River in just 3 minutes, and connecting the new eco-district of Les Capucins and its 4000 new occupants to the rest of the city. The infrastructure is capable of resisting wind speeds of up to 108km and is equipped with cable cars each designed to hold the equivalent of half a busload of passengers, meaning that it could carry up to 675,000 passengers per year. This innovative solution is cheaper than building a bridge, blends into the historic heart of the city and will also have a very low carbon footprint. The CO2 emissions per kilometre and per passenger will be 30 times less than for the same journey by car!

NorthConnex
Sydney - Australia
5,000 trucks off the road each day

In Sydney, Bouygues Construction Australia and Lend Lease are designing and building NorthConnex, which is a 9 km-long twin tunnel motorway connecting the west and the north of Sydney. The new infrastructure will bring huge environmental benefits and ease traffic congestion on the outskirts of Sydney by taking almost 5000 trucks off the Pennant Hills Road each day. Drivers taking this tunnel will be able to avoid some twenty sets of traffic lights and reduce their travel time by 15 minutes. The work, due to last four years, will create 2500 jobs.

Bouygues Bâtiment Sud-Est has been commissioned by Aéroports de Lyon to design and build the future Terminal 1 at Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport. The new infrastructure, comprising 70,000 sq. metres spread over three floors, will double the airport’s total surface area and allow it to welcome 15 million passengers per year in 2020, and to offer new services including a 10,000 sq. metre shopping complex. The building, which will be HQE© certified, has been designed with the help of a 3D digital mock-up and will be built according to a sustainable construction approach. The project also aims to reduce energy and water consumption thanks to passive solutions and the building’s high-performance outer shell.

Raymond Barre bridge
Lyon - France
15 m deep piles in the middle of the Rhone

Crossing the Rhone just upstream of its confluence with the Saone, the Raymond Barre bridge connects the Confluence and Gerland districts. Only open to trams, pedestrians and cyclists the tied-arch bridge is special in that it has a main span of 150 m at an angle to the river's flow, in echo of the metal Mulatière railway bridge that crosses the Saone nearby. Seen from the banks and the A7 motorway, the Raymond Barre bridge is the new gateway to Lyon over the Rhone.

Dunkirk methane terminal
Dunkerque - France
570 000 m3   capacity

As part of the vast Dunkirk methane terminal project, EDF has commissioned Bouygues Travaux Publics and Entrepose Contracting to design and construct three prestressed concrete LNG reservoirs. With a 570,000 m3 capacity, a diameter measuring 91 m and a height of 50 m, these reservoirs will be some of the biggest in the world. Located on a fragile coastline, the construction site has to meet extremely stringent environmental protection requirements. For example, a concrete plant has been especially built on the site itself in order to reduce lorry noise and traffic. Since the very start, Bouygues Travaux Publics, along with its public and community partners, has conducted a large-scale inclusion project to integrate the long-term unemployed into their roster of locally-engaged staff.
