Egis has directed design and provided full EPCM services for the first two tram lines in the Greater Dijon city area. A major challenge for this project was its successful implementation within a tight budget.
The first two tramlines in the urban area of the city of Dijon will include 20 kilometres of track and some thirty stations serving the three main axes concentrating most of the transport demand. A mixed depot is planned, handing both buses and trams. Initially planned for 33 trams, it will be extendable to 52 trams and 200 buses. Staying within budget was a major priority for the client and a significant challenge for the EPCM consultancy team.
Egis steered the entire project from preliminary design through to commissioning. The EPCM mission covered infrastructure, systems, rolling stock and the depot. Egis also undertook the following complementary missions: assistance with public consultation exercise, coordination, communication, safety and analysis of geotechnical surveys.
