On this occasion, the Eiffage Génie Civil consortium, leader of lot 1 - with Spie Batignolles / Ghella / Cogeis, signed the new works contract for the French construction sites of the Lyon-Turin base tunnel. This package includes the construction of a 22 km section of tunnel between the existing Villarodin-Bourget/Modane tunnel and Italy, in approximately 72 months.
 
The tunnels will be dug towards Turin using two tunnel boring machines and towards Lyon using traditional methods.
