Immersion in the underground station
For this year’s European Heritage Days, teams on the GC TUN batch of the Eole project (Bouygues Travaux Publics, Eiffage Génie Civil and Razel Bec), welcomed the public to the future Porte Maillot station!
The unique event was an opportunity for all the project teams to show off their work to the curious onlookers who flocked to the site. Immersed in the heart of the station, they were able to wander through this 225-metre-long structure, 35 metres below the centre of Paris, and discover the pedestrian glass roof, providing a veritable shaft of light. Sharing and pride were the watchwords of this exceptional day. Several visitors shared their experience:
“Incredible! It’s amazing what they can do.”
“I can’t wait to walk on the glass roof.”
In all, more than 1,500 people visited the station, making the day a real success, thanks to the commitment of all the teams involved and the synergy between them!
The EOLE adventure nearly over
Following the delivery of 6.1 kilometres of tunnel a few months ago, work on Porte Maillot station is nearing completion. Since 2017, Bouygues Travaux Publics teams have been working on the civil engineering of this structure, which is part of the EOLE project to extend the RER E rapid transit network to the west. Built in an extremely restrictive urban environment, the future station will provide a link with the RER C, metro line 1 and the T3 tramway, as well as easy access to the Palais des Congrès conference centre.
See you in 2024 for delivery of the station!
