The last 2017 Suite Rapide site breaks all records
An amazing final push forward for the GCF Suite Rapide programme.
GCF makes an amazingly intense final push forward in France as it prepares to complete the fourth and final Suite Rapide Renewal site for 2017. The company has had to face and resolve a number of complications on the final 40 kilometres of line in Lot 2 of the Suite Rapide 2013-2017 Programme. However, the difficulties have not stopped it reaching record production on several occasions. Now it is focusing on the future after delivering to France a total of 900 kilometres of completely renewed, upgraded railway line with 17 worksites and 28 sections of railway line.
