Project description

The south-east section of line 15 (section T2 of the red line) of the Grand Paris Public Transport Network is located between the stations of Noisy-Champs and Villejuif Louis Aragon.

The notable geotechnical challenges encountered included:

  •   Ground with poor geotechnical characteristics
  •   Alteration of geotechnical layers below a quaternary covering
  •   Swelling soils
  •   High permeability
  •   Decompressed or empty areas related to gypsum dissolution
  •   Karst phenomena
  •   The presence of underground quarries and backfilled sand extraction pits
  •   Groundwater under pressure
