Procurement set to start for new Paris metro line

16 Apr 15 The Société du Grand Paris is preparing to publish a preliminary information notice about the first eight civils contracts for a major new underground railway in the French capital.

The notice in the Official Journal of the European Union concerns the first civil engineering works contracts for Line 15 South of the Grand Paris Express. The work covers 33km of underground lines, 16 stations between Pont-de-Sèvres and Noisy-Champs, and 38 related engineering structures.

Eight main works contracts are planned, with bidding phases spread over the second quarter of 2015 up to the second quarter of 2016. The contracts will include station construction, bored tunnels, specific structures and additional works including ventilation systems.

The Société du Grand Paris is a public agency set up by the French state to design and implement the new Grand Paris metro. It plans to select five to seven candidates for each tender process. Related works that are not included in the first contracts will be put out to tender separately from 2016 onwards.
