Tunnel Euralpin Lyon Turin, Le Bourget Du Lac, FR
Tunnel Euralpin Lyon Turin is a public binational promoter responsible for the realization and operation of the cross-border section of the mixed Lyon-Turin freight/passenger railway line. TELT is a French company owned 50% by the French State (Ministry of the Ecological Transition) and 50% by the Italian State (via the Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane group). It was founded on 23 February 2015, replacing LTF (Lyon Turin Ferroviaire), owned by the operators of the SNCF and RFI railway networks, which was responsible for the studies and preliminary works from October 2001 to February 2015. TELT shares the European goal of achieving a new faster and more efficient transport network in recognition also of the global need to reduce pollution. Aware of the fact that the crossing of the Alps represents a crucial node for commercial exchanges and the mobility of people between European nations, TELT is committed to respecting the international agreements and implementing the infrastructure on schedule and in full respect not only of the highest quality standards, but also of the environment and of all legal requirements.
The top management of TELT consists of the President, appointed by the French State, who represents the Company before the stakeholders, and the Executive Director, chosen by the Italian State, who directs and administers it. Both are members of the Board of Directors, with voting rights, alongside four members appointed by the French government and four appointed by the Italian one. The post of Board Member has a renewable term of six years and is not remunerated. The European Commission may appoint a representative who sits on the board as a non-voting member. At the moment, the President is Hubert du Mesnil and the Executive Director is Mario Virano.
The cross-border section of the Lyon-Turin freight and passenger railway line extends over a stretch of 65 km between Susa in Piedmont and Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in Savoy.
The main feature of the work is the 57.5 km long Mont Cenis base tunnel – 12.5 km in Italy and 45 in France – linking the international stations of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne and Susa, which constitute the connection points to the respective national lines in France and Italy.
The work realization is a unique opportunity to experiment new AI solutions, to study BIG DATA use and security and to develop smart solutions for safety and security that can be applied in other complex works. Also in the next few years TELT will lead the technologies of the tunnel before the exploitation of the new railway line between Lyon and Turin.
