17 June, 2019

As part of the work on the T3C section of Line 15 South of the Grand Paris Express project, the second tunnel boring machine - Amandine - began work at the end of April to tunnel the 3.4 km from Arcueil-Cachan station to Villejuif Louis Aragon.

The first machine - Ellen - began tunnelling the 3.9 km stretch from the Parc Robespierre shaft in Bagneux to Fort d'Issy-Vanves-Clamart in mid-February.

Having completed the first 112 metres of tunnel, it is currently at a standstill awaiting the lowering and connection of trailer sections. This work is being carried out by VINCI Construction (VINCI Construction Grands Projets as consortium leader, VINCI Construction France, Dodin Campenon Bernard and Botte Fondations) and Spie Batignolles.
