Eole Tunnel

Eole Tunnel

As part of the Grand Paris Express megaproject, this €3.8bn (£3.34bn) Eole RER urban railway project is large enough to compare with London’s Crossrail in scope and complexity. Like Crossrail it features a tunnelled central section connecting with existing, upgraded railway lines at either end to improve east-west connectivity and crucially link the main Paris business district to the city centre. When completed in 2024, it’s expected to carry more than 620,000 passengers daily.
Shurjoint #R-88N Ring Joint couplings (450mm) pass the 50bar pressure surge requirement and are used for the slurry piping of TBM (tunnel boring machine).
