Urban cable cars for Orléans
1 March 2017 - New contracts - France
A joint venture notably comprising GTM Normandie Centre (leader) and Sogea Centre, both VINCI Construction France subsidiaries, is to build the new urban cable-car system in Orléans (central France) which, by 2018, will be able to transport up to 60 passengers between the railway station and the future Interives neighbourhood, crossing above the railway tracks of Fleury-les-Aubrais station as it does so.
The two cabins, supplied by Grenoble-based cable-car manufacturer Poma, will take about two minutes to complete their 380 m-long journey. The project calls for the installation of two pylons at each end of the line and the construction of two stations.
After Brest, which has had urban cable cars since November 2016, Orléans will be the second French city to have this type of cable-based public transport system. The works will be carried out between autumn 2017 and the end of 2018.
Contract value: €14.7m.
