Expansion of Metro Paris, Line 14:
Anchoring the Power Supply Lines

„Le Grand Paris” is a project creating space in Paris, Europe’s most densely populated city. The project is uniting the capital with multiple neighbouring communities – not only territorially, but also through administration, city planning and new living spaces. The expansion of the public transport network is creating good connections. The existing route 14 has already been expanded by 6 km and five new stations. Steel anchors manufactured by the German company Fischer were used to securely fix the power lines.
