TBM Amandine at work for the Grand Paris Express
21 May 2019 - Projects update and handover - France
The second TBM, called Amandine, started its drive in late April 2019 from the Arcueil-Cachan station and heading for Villejuif Louis Aragon (3.4 km), as part of the works on section T3C of Line 15 South of the Grand Paris Express.
The previous TBM, Ellen, began its drive from the Parc Robespierre shaft, in Bagneux, towards Fort d’Issy-Vanves-Clamart (3.9 km) in mid-February 2019.
After its first 112 metres, it is currently at a standstill for the descent and connection of the following trailers. These works are being undertaken by VINCI Construction (VINCI Construction Grands Projets, leader, VINCI Construction France, Dodin Campenon Bernard and Botte Fondations) and Spie Batignolles.
