Rhine-Rhône High speed railway – East Branch

The East Branch of the Rhine-Rhone HSR is a 190km high-speed line (350km/h) running between Mulhouse and Dijon, via Belfort-Montbéliard and Besançon.

Further work is in progress on Phase 2 to extend both ends of the line – 15km westward and 35km eastward – to provide direct links to Strasbourg and Mulhouse.

SYSTRA was involved in every phase of this 5-year project on the Rhine-Rhone HSR, from preliminary designs through to construction.

  • Managing technical guidelines,
  • Drawing up and managing work schedules,
  • Coordinating project management activities,
  • Coordinating the activities of other contractors providing assistance to the Owner,
  • Producing technical analyses,
  • Conducting third party inspections,
  • Managing administrative issues,
  • Providing tender assistance, awarding contracts and monitoring contractor activities,
  • Keeping the Owner up-to-date with progress on the project.

During the construction phase, SYSTRA was in charge of:

  • Signalling
  • Track work: catenaries and work bases
  • Traction power: building electric traction stations and two sub-stations

In addition, SYSTRA was jointly responsible for integration testing.
