Arcadis wins Paris Metro geotechnical contract

Consultant Arcadis has won a geotechnical and technical advisory services contract for work on the new Grand Paris Metro, a 155km automated metro to circle the outskirts of the city.

The €8M (£7.1M) contract is to lead, monitor and analyse the geotechnical investigations and define the geological and geotechnical models for the underground tracks and overpasses, including the stations.

The new £20.3bn metro line will circle the city of Paris and will have more than 130km of tunnelled sections. The new system, which is due to be complete in 2023, will feature a total of 72 stations and will interconnect with the existing public transportation systems in Paris.
