The NGE group and Alstom were selected by France’s Greater Avignon Agglomeration and Tecelys as part of a project involving the civil works platform and track works for the Avignon tramway.
The consortium, led by the NGE group via its subsidiary TSO, was chosen after a public tender to construct approximately 3.3 miles of civil works (approximately 6.7 miles of track), with eight corresponding track turnouts, 10 stations, and a maintenance center. The project includes the design, supply, and installation of the civil works platforms and track. The works, which will last 20 months, are scheduled to end in January 2019.
The consortium brings together TSO, subsidiary of the NGE group, Alstom, Guintoli, EHTP, and Agilis. The project will also be an opportunity to promote the commitments made by all the partner companies, as 8% of hours worked will be dedicated to professional insertion.
