Scaling up train stations
One of the advantages of the railway network is to carry passengers right into the city centre. But increased traffic means that there are more and more passengers at stations, which are now facing capacity problems. With the ever-increasing flow of people, the infrastructure must be scaled up, but the expansion of stations in the heart of cities, in a limited space, is often problematic. Given the increasing urban density, engineers and architects must design underground expansion projects.
At BG, we have a multidisciplinary team of experts who focus on transport planning and manage far-reaching projects. They operate internationally, notably in creating stations on new lines (RER, Grand Paris) and expanding urban stations. Changing lifestyles, demographic change and urban development are challenges that our engineers are constantly addressing, with a view to sustainability. A well-designed train station is an important part of this, as it provides an incentive to use public transport.
