Opening of the multimodal transport hub at Bordeaux railway station
19 June 2017 - Projects update and handover - France
Created by a joint venture composed of VINCI companies, the extension to Bordeaux Saint-Jean station (west of France) has been opened to users two months ahead of the arrival of the Sud Europe Atlantique high- speed line (HSL).
The works were undertaken by VINCI Construction France subsidiaries GTM Sud-Ouest TP GC and GTM Bâtiment Aquitaine, in charge of the structural and finishing works, together with Navarra TS, SIDF, Soletanche Bachy Pieux and Structure Engineering (all VINCI Construction subsidiaries) and VINCI Energies France business units Tunzini Bordeaux and Santerne Aquitaine.
This new multimodal hub includes a mixed-use building providing 2,500 sq. metres of space for travellers, 1,800 sq. metres of retail space and 670 parking spaces (370 parking spaces for bikes are still to come). When the SEA HSL opens on 2 July, it is expected that this concourse, providing direct access to the railway platforms, will be used by more than 16,000 travellers each day.
