Eiffage wins the Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne rail interconnection

Eiffage, through its subsidiaries Eiffage Génie Civil and Eiffage Rail, has been selected to build the Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne interconnection between the future Mont-Cenis base tunnel on the Lyon-Turin rail line and the existing rail network. The contract was awarded by SNCF Réseau, acting as project owner under an agreement with TELT, accompanied by Systra as project manager, and is worth €189.5 million in total.

This contract won as an integrated offer includes the construction of the new rail platform as well as infrastructures of the passenger and fire safety buildings of the future Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne train station. It also involves laying new track to serve the Trimet aluminium plant and track improvement works on the historic Maurienne Valley train line.

Works started in February 2023 and will involve four phases, with gaps in between in order to change over between rail infrastructure construction and tracks development, signals and overhead contact lines works, and to switch traffic between different configurations. Final completion is scheduled for spring 2032.
