France

Formed nearly 60 years ago by RATP and SNCF, SYSTRA is France’s leading public transport engineering player. A participant in the country’s biggest projects, SYSTRA offers experience and know-how in developing reliable and ever more efficient and environmentally-friendly public transport.

France is where SYSTRA established its reputation, trained its best engineers and developed a portfolio of references that serve as a showcase for the group as it expands internationally. We are firmly rooted in the country through projects across all modes of transport, from high-speed to slower modes, including conventional rail, subway, tramway, bus rapid transit, road travel, port systems, etc.

We are unique in our capacity to operate across all stages of a project, whether it is project management, technical assistance or supporting the contracting authority. Our unequalled skills in operation, maintenance, testing and rail works means we can intervene in already existing and operating installations. Our teams are focused on one objective: to produce the best possible project with prompt delivery.

A few of the most significant projects that SYSTRA recently worked on or is currently working on include the South Europe-Atlantic high-speed railway line (LGV SEA), the future metro network set out in the Grand Paris plan, the Besançon tramway and extensions to Paris metro lines 14 and 4.

Île-de-France

Public transport plays a crucial role in the operation of the Île-de-France region, and every time a dysfunction occurs, the repercussions are significant.

As such, the development and quality assurance of the Île-de-France network is a priority for the public authorities.

Several rail projects overseen by SNCF Réseau are in progress, including upgrading/regeneration programmes. The region has begun some major urban transport projects, including all of the new infrastructure projects in the Grand Paris plan. SYSTRA is currently working on line 15 of the Grand Paris plan, extensions to Paris metro lines 4, 11, 12 and 14, an extension to EOLE (RER E) in the west and to the Antony-Clamart tramway (T10), among others.

North and East

We are working on the second phase of the East European HS line that will link Paris with Strasbourg, which is currently in the process of equipment testing and will be delivered in July 2016.

In Lille, SYSTRA oversees the management of infrastructure and system projects for the renovation of line 1 of the city metro and to double the length of its trains.

For the ports of Le Havre and Dunkirk, we are project managing upgrades to the port lines.

South-East

France’s south-eastern region offers a broad and diverse range of projects involving improvements and developments to the existing transport offering, which include rail, regional and urban projects.

Systra is present across all of these projects, whether it is during the preliminary research phase (the new Provence-Côte d’Azur line, the Nîmes tramway, etc.), as project manager (extension to the Lyon metro, upgrading of the Saint Gervais–Vallorcine line, etc.), head of the project management consortium in a public-private partnership (Nîmes-Montpellier bypass) or as delegated infrastructure manager (management of operation, maintenance and rail security on the East and West basins of Marseille’s Grand Port Maritime).

Accustomed to working on complex projects, we are also present in the road tunnel market, including safety passages on the Fréjus and Chat tunnels and the tunnel on the Dijon bypass (the LINO).

In the cable transport sector, SYSTRA is the project manager in the building consortium for the funicular project in Grasse.

West and South-West

SYSTRA’s references in these regions include prestigious projects such as the Bordeaux tramway, working on all stages from commencement. At present we are project managers for the third phase of the project and project managers for the Medoc tram-train project in Bordeaux region.

We assisted the contracting authority in completing the tram-train line linking Nantes and Chateaubriand, France’s longest line at 64 kilometres, for which we prepared and supervised dynamic trials. We also helped with preparation of the works for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) networks in Poitiers and Toulouse. And the South Europe-Atlantic high-speed line that shortens the Paris-Bordeaux route to two hours and seven minutes is still scheduled to open in July 2017.
