The consortium, led by the NGE group via its subsidiary TSO, was chosen after a public tender to construct 5.4 kilometres of civil works (10.8 kilometres of track), with 8 corresponding track turnouts, 10 stations and a maintenance centre.
The project includes the design, supply and installation of the civil works platforms and track. The works, which will last 20 months, are scheduled to end in January 2019.
Jean Bernadet, CEO of TSO, said:
“We are very proud to associate ourselves with partners like Alstom to pool our skills and expertise in order to carry out a large-scale project such as this one. The trust shown by the agglomeration community of Greater Avignon in choosing us for this large-scale project demonstrates that the NGE Group, with its subsidiary TSO, is a recognised, key player in the railway sector.”
Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, Managing Director of Alstom in France, added:
“We are honoured by the renewed trust of the Greater Avignon, which will benefit from the expertise of Alstom teams based in France, both for the rolling stock and the rail infrastructure project. By associating their know-how, NGE and Alstom offer Greater Avignon reliable, tested, and competitive solutions, with a proven track-record”
