The Fort d’Issy – Vanves – Clamart station, the first Grand Paris Express construction project!
Bouygues Travaux Publics – an actor in the first contract for the first Grand Paris Express station!
In March 2016, the Société du Grand Paris revealed the companies in charge of the civil engineering projects on the future station of Fort d’Issy – Vanves – Clamart on line 15 South of the Grand Paris Express. The consortium composed of Bouygues Travaux Publics, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, as well as three partner subsidiaries of the Soletanche Bachy France group (Soletanche Bachy France, Soletanche Bachy Pieux and Soletanche Bachy Tunnels) was named a beneficiary. It is the first civil engineering contract among the eight required to build the 33 km of tunnel, 16 stations and 38 ancillary works on line 15 South. By 2022, the expected project completion date, the line will connect the stations of Noisy-Champs to Pont-de-Sèvres in just thirty-five minutes thanks to an automated network.
KM1: an artistic and cultural programme for the launch of the first Grand Paris Express construction project!
To mark the beginning of the construction on the future Fort d’Issy – Vanves – Clamart station, an artistic and cultural programme called 'KM1' for 'kilometre 1' will take place on 4 June 2016 at the Clamart station. Designed by José-Manuel Gonçalvès and Jérôme Sans, this festive day, open to the public, will host a multitude of activities: a parade, shows, concerts, walks around the city, a culinary showcase, a grand public ball, etc.
The Grand Paris Express cultural programme aims to have a long-lasting impact throughout the future network. Over time, these mobile and durable works will turn the Grand Paris Express into a true artistic journey that will establish its identity.
What is the Grand Paris Express?
The Grand Paris Express is a city-wide development project designed to improve the living conditions of its residents, reduce territorial inequalities and build a sustainable city. Backed by the Société du Grand Paris, this extraordinary network is scheduled to include 200 km of automated metro lines, including 68 new stations to connect the hubs of greater Paris, the three airports and the TGV stations. This project poses a technical challenge and is also an economic, social and cultural feat that should significantly reduce travel time for thousands of users, particularly between suburbs.
