Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne station impression

FRANCE: A consortium of Systra, WSP and Richez_Associés has won a project management contract for the construction of the international station at Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne at the French entrance to the future 57·5 km base tunnel beneath Mont Cenis on the planned new line linking Lyon and Torino.

The consortium said challenges include the narrow valley, integration of the project into the local area, minimising construction noise, and ensuring continuity of traffic on the existing Culoz – Modane line.
