Eiffel secures Reunion Island viaduct contract
Eiffel has won a US$24.5 million construction contract for the Viaduc de la Grand Ravine on the Tamarins road on Reunion Island. The 288m-long steel deck will be designed to withstand winds of 290km/h. It will require 124,000 hours of design studies followed by fabrication in Lauterbourg and transport to site, with opening due by the end of 2008. The company had already been awarded two other structures as part of the scheme.
