Stand B70. Generale Costruzioni Ferroviarie, experience that innovates
70 years of experience in the railway sector, in Italy and abroad. Hundreds of armouring, signalling and electrification sites.

The works of Lot 2 of Suite Rapide, involved along line 655,000 Bordeaux - Saint Jean Irun for the total renewal of almost 70 km of railway line, have resumed at full pace after the two weeks holiday in mid-August.
