Tunneling contracts for the Metro Line C project in Toulouse, France have been awarded to JVs of Eiffage & NGE for lot 2 and Implenia & Demathieu Bard Construction for lot 3. Line C project, which had its groundbreaking ceremony in December 2022, is scheduled to run from Colomiers to Labège. The entire Line C project is estimated to last 57 months and once completed, will serve the west, north, east, and south-east of the Toulouse conurbation, passing through the municipalities of Colomiers, Blagnac, Toulouse, and Lebège. It will also provide access to the T1 tram line to Toulouse-Blagnac Airport through the new Jean Maga station.


Tisséo, the owner and operator of Toulouse's public transport, is promoting the Line C metro project and estimates the total project cost to be EUR 2.7 bn. As for the scope, the project involves building 21 new stations, of which 17 will be underground, along a 27 km new line that will almost double the length of the existing Lines A and B. About 20 km of the new line will be underground, while the rest will be above ground. The works will include the construction of 18 underground auxiliary structures and a new viaduct at the southern end.


The Eiffage NGE JV has been awarded lot 2 of the metro project in a contract worth almost EUR 590 million, with Eiffage receiving 65% and NGE receiving 35%. The consortium will build 8.4 km of new tunnels, six new stations, and five related intersection structures between the Laporte annex structure and the Raynal station. It will also build a tunnel that connects to the maintenance area and nine safety galleries that connect shafts to the tunnel.
