SC Afrique was chosen by SYSTRA, an international engineering and consulting group in urban and rail transport, to carry out the topographic part of its assistance to the contracting authority mission on the T.E.R (Regional Express Train) project in Dakar.
The project will connect downtown Dakar to its suburbs by a rail line, embark on relieving congestion in the city of Dakar and improve mobility conditions in the Dakar metropolitan area by reducing the vehicle operating cost and increasing train speeds.
The project takes into account the service needs introduced by the new airport and contributes to its attractiveness. Its total length is 57 km between Dakar and the Blaise Diagne International Airport (AIBD).
The project will involve modifying the existing railway facilities eventually to accommodate four tracks:
The project also includes:
It is within this framework that SC Afrique must carry out an AMO topographic mission and participate actively in the technical supervision of the work. One of the challenges of the project will be the solution of topographic interface conflicts between the different work packages (station platforms, engineering structures with jigs, electrification, etc.)
Our survey teams will be mobilised to organise and verify the proper conduct of the work approval operations.
