THE PARIS UNDERGROUND RAILWAY: THE EXTENSION OF LINE A OF THE REGIONAL EXPRESS NETWORK (RER) AT TORCY

METRO DE PARIS: LE PROLONGEMENT A TORCY DE LA LIGNE A DU RESEAU EXPRESS REGIONAL

This extension is 9 km long from the present terminus at Noisy-le-Grand Mont and comprises 4 stations, each serving a sector of the new town of Marne-la-Vallee. Along most of the line, the construction of the RER precedes urban development thus benefiting from privileged conditions as regards alignment and ease of construction. To limit nuisances, the railway line is built mainly in cuttings in marl and marl-limestone layers surrounded by the water table. Approximately twenty structures were necessary to link the planned road network, including a 570 m-long viaduct with noise barriers. The whole construction period will last 30 months, the total cost will be 400 million francs.
