A86 Duplex showcased as NCE iPad app goes live

NCE’s cutting edge iPad app is now live, bringing you more news, more images and more technical detail, when and where you want it. With support from our launch partner Vinci Construction UK and Vinci Construction Grands Projets, NCE’s iPad app is your weekly NCE but paperless and with more interaction.

NCE iPad Edition

We launch this week with more images of Vinci’s groundbreaking A86 Duplex tunnel in Paris.

Inaugurated last month, it now takes less than 10 minutes to complete the 10km trip between Rueil-Malmaison (Hauts-de-Seine) and Vélizy (Yvelines), compared to over 45 minutes on average using surface roads. The tunnel, reserved for light vehicles, consists of two superimposed decks carrying traffic moving in opposite directions.

Designed, built, financed and operated by Vinci and Colas-owned Cofiroute, this new generation urban tunnel forms the final, western link of the A86 motorway, the second ring road in the Paris region. The project was inaugrated last month, six months ahead of schedule.

To see more about this fascinating project, download the NCE app from the Apple store. Available immediately is this week’s NCE.

In the weeks to come other recent supplements will be made available, including Delivering the London Games, Infrastructure in 2011, Delivering Thameslink and Thames Tunnel major project reports.
