Context and challenges
With more than 8 million daily passengers and continually increasing traffic, the Paris area public transportation system needs to be upgraded and extended in order to meet the ambitions of the Grand Paris program. To meet these demands, the Grand Paris Express project has been launched, the 4th larger infrastructure project in the world in terms of costs.
Société du Grand Paris intends to build a 200 km automated metro network, most of which will be underground, over five lines (14, 15, 16, 17 and 18), with 68 stations and five maintenance sites. It will open up access to a wide range of localities around Paris, connecting the major strategic centres of the Ile-de-France to each other and to Paris.
Société du Grand Paris, project owner of the Grand Paris Express, appointed Assystem as the project management consultant. The project’s main goal is to provide a technical expertise (project management, infrastructures, systems) to reinforce project owner scope, coupled with a consulting expertise.
The PROXEMYS consortium, led by Assystem and including Louis Berger and Antea carries out project management activities, digital tools set up and organisational consulting.
