Marseille Transport Network

Metalwork equipment for the Marseille Metro network

Portalp, through its major projects agency and its expertise in rail transport, has won 3 tenders to equip the Marseille metro with automated solutions and metalwork.

The 9-strong project team, comprising a project manager, a works supervisor, a site manager, two installation teams and 3 subcontractors, is working simultaneously via these different teams on different projects at night, so as not to disrupt operations.

This transport network comprises 2 metro lines and 29 stations to be equipped.

The Marseilles Metro network, operated by RTM (Régie des Transports Métropolitains), has an annual ridership of 77 million, representing 211,000 daily users.
