Light Automatic Railway – Orlyval – Orly Airport, France

Light Automatic Railway – Orlyval – Orly Airport, France

SYSTRA was awarded the contract to project manage the automatic Orlyval shuttle service between Antony and Orly Airport in 1991.

In the late 1980s, the decision was taken to build a Light Automatic Railway (VAL system) to improve services to Orly Airport. This fully automated, driverless line offered greater operational flexibility and met NF Service certification standards. The 7.3km Orlyval line comprises 4 stations: Antony, Orly-West, Orly-South (departures hall) and Orly-South (arrivals hall). It includes a 2.8km underground section and a 1.6km viaduct over the road network at terminal level.

Between 1988 and 1992, SYSTRA’s experts were responsible for complete project management, including:

  • Civil Engineering;
  • Track laying;
  • Equipment non-related to the Light Automatic Railway system.

SYSTRA also produced a technical and economic feasibility study for the westward extension of the Orlyval line to Antony.
