Our Environment teams win the project management and monitoring of the ecological compensation for the Grand Paris Express.
Do not harm biodiversity and the services it provides, an objective of the project
The Grand Paris Express (GPE) network is a programme of automatic metros designed to link the major strategic centres of the Ile-de-France region, while connecting them with the centre of the Paris conurbation.
Comprising various sections (from line 15 to line 18), the entire network totals approximately 200 km of mostly underground track and includes 68 stations and 7 technical centres. By the time all the lines are completed (planned for 2030), the network will link the centres of Greater Paris, the 3 airports and the TGV stations with more than 2 million passengers per day.
Some of the sections are to be put into service as early as 2024 to serve the main Olympic venues for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This concerns in particular:
The other sections will be commissioned between 2027 and 2030.
In addition to these challenges, there are regulatory obligations, in particular the obligation under the environmental code not to harm biodiversity and the services it provides.
The general objective of the complete project management service is to implement and monitor the ecological compensation measures to meet the regulatory requirements defined by the Environmental Code.
The service led by CDC Biodiversité and Egis aims to continue a series of contracts or assignments currently underway:
The project management team is responsible for monitoring just under twenty compensation sites, the state of progress of which is very varied (some measures have yet to be identified, while others are in the post-restoration monitoring phase).
