a third Greater Paris Express station : Massy-Palaiseau on line 18
The Société du Grand Paris persues and will soon complete the attribution of design commissions for the Greater Paris Express, the largest project in Europe. Line 18 which links Orly to Versailles via the Plateau de Saclay was conferred last winter and we had great pleasure being appointed within a group that includes Ingerop, Artelia, Arcadis, 2/3/4, Feichtinger, Vezzoni, JFS and, of course, Richez_Associés on the Massy-Palaiseau Station.
Our tender stage proposal: in the centre of the extensive railway plateau of the vast existing transport hub (2 RER, 1 TGV, almost 30 bus lines), a large translucent vault springs out of the ground; it follows the route of travellers from the below ground metro platforms to the footbridges that span and dominate the tracks to become a strong emblem of the Massy-Palaiseau transport campus. The preliminary design proceeds along several scenarios and delivery of the line is planned for 2024, that is, two years after our stations on Line 15: Champigny-Centre and Bry-Villiers-Champigny and 4 years after the Maintenance and Storage Depot, also in Champigny.
