In France the Rossi Group has renewed over 1,000 kilometres of track
Over 1,000 kilometres of completely renewed railway line. GCF's summer in France has reached a significant landmark for the made in Italy Suite Rapide.
With a series of 22 sites – starting with the Pau Dax one in 2013 – on 35 sections of the French railway network, the Rossi Group, head of the Transalp Renouvellement Consortium, has delivered 1,078 kilometres of new track – by replacing rails and sleepers – and 1,094 kilometres of cleaned ballast to SNCF, the French national railway company in just under six years.
All this has been done at a rate of 1,000 metres per day as outlined in the Suite Rapide protocol, the "fast lane" of the French railway network General Renewal Plan.
