In March, Salini Impregilo and joint-venture partner Nouvelles Générations d’Entrepreneurs won a €203M contract to extend Line 14 of the Grand Paris Express to the Orly airport.
The work marks the Group’s return to France 20 years since it worked on the city’s Est-Ouest Liaison Express (EOLE) between 1992 and 1998. Salini Impregilo also contributed to the progressive expansion of the city’s metro, working on the METEOR line (Metro Est-Ouest Rapide).
The future Line 16 of Grand Paris Express will serve a number of communes in the northern and eastern part of metropolitan Paris.
