Metro, tramway, urban express train: Soletanche Bachy is involved in the development of urban ecomobility throughout the world.
For over 80 years, Soletanche Bachy teams have been carrying out special foundation work for urban transport projects such as metros.
Our works help to encourage the use of less carbon-intensive modes of transport and reduce car traffic, thus improving air quality in cities.
We offer our entire portfolio of geotechnical processes to build these infrastructures, which contribute to greener mobility in cities: underground stations, stations, tunnels, access shafts, interconnection structures and associated civil engineering… And thanks to our expertise, we are able to take charge of the entire rail project with our partners as general contractors.
We also master all the constraints associated with the location of this type of infrastructure, in highly complex urban environments: Restricted right-of-ways, work at limited heights, road traffic management, limitation of possible impacts on neighboring structures, noise pollution, possible high levels of co-activity on site, maintaining the activity of nearby structures, etc.
Soletanche Bachy has worked on mass transit systems all over the world, including Le Grand Paris, the Singapore, Hong Kong, Lisbon and Warsaw metros, and the CRL project in Auckland.
