Railway tunnels on the EOLE E line in Paris

Davorin Kolić, Alain Balan, Andre Bordas, Olivier Bouygues, Vittorio Guglielmetti

Abstract

The EOLE is the acronym of "Est-Ouest Liaison Express" (East-West Express Link), and its construction ranks among the biggest underground construction projects undertaken in Paris over the past several decades. The authors describe basic features of this transport facility, and present in more detail two tunnels situated along the route. A particular emphasis is placed on complex geological conditions, with three principal geological formations encountered along the tunnel route. Numerical analyses and realization methods are also presented.
