The project includes the extension of a Paris metro line, to improve connections between the city and the Orly airport, located south of the French capital.

Webuild and its joint-venture partner Nouvelles Générations d’Entrepreneurs (NGE) by La Régie autonome des transports parisiens (RATP), concerns one of four sections that will make up the 14-kilometre extension of Line 14 South to the airport. On Lot GC04, the Group will excavate a 4.1-kilometre tunnel from Pont de Rungis station to the site of a new station at Orly. Upon completion, the entire line will allow transportation of up to 300 thousand passengers a day​, improving connections and travel times between Orly and the city by linking the airport to Line 18 of the Paris metro and a new one to be called Line 15.​

The contract marks not only the Group’s return to France 20 years since it worked on the city’s Est-Ouest Liaison Express (EOLE), but also its entry into the Grand Paris Express, a massive project that will expand the city’s public transport network to the periphery by 2030.​
