Egis wins the site supervision contract for the overhaul of the Leopold II Tunnel in Brussels

Egis wins the public-private partnership site supervision contract for the overhaul of the Leopold II Tunnel in Brussels.

Bruxelles Mobilité has awarded Egis and its partners Stibbe, Rebel and SGI a comprehensive assignment for the supervision of renovation works on the Leopold II tunnel in Brussels. This major link in the Belgian capital’s road infrastructure is 2,600 metres long and is used by an average of 80,000 vehicles per day.

The renovation is scheduled to last 39 months and will cost approximately 200 million euros. It comprises structural repairs, asbestos removal, road resurfacing, the installation of 17 new emergency exits and a total overhaul of the tunnels systems such as power, control systems and ventilation.

Work will be conducted in a dense urban environment and without closing the tunnel to traffic!

What helped our bid to stand out was our ability to share a global vision of the project with the client and put forward integrated solutions. This is illustrated by the strength and depth of our Franco-Belgian consortium which brings together a varied range of Egis expertise but also legal and financial advisers, asbestos specialists and urban planners.
