Synergies for the first tram line in Toulouse
December 2010 - France
In Toulouse (south-western France), the first tram line, 11 km in length, was brought into service on 27 November. With 18 stops, it serves the towns of Toulouse, Blagnac and Beauzelle. It is also an example of excellent collaboration between a number of Group companies, for whom it represented a contract worth a total of €26.4m. Eurovia’s Toulouse office, leader of a consortium of companies, was responsible for the works relating to roadways, pavements and tram-stop platforms, and the concrete of the surface and foundations of the tramway platform. Cegelec Infrastructures & Mobility (Cegelec GSS Division) and Cegelec Sud-Ouest (Cegelec France Division), of the Energy business line, supplied the overhead contact line and the tramway signalling. Roiret Transport and Fournié Grospaud Toulouse (both part of the VINCI Energies France Division of the Energy business line) were responsible for the infrastructure management systems and the PA, video surveillance, access control, telephony and intercom systems.
