The contract, valued at approximately €400mn, was awarded to a consortium led by Vinci SA and fellow French construction company Spie Batignolles.
The length of the line will be 4.6km, of which the consortium will be expected to excavate, whilst also constructing the new Kremlin Bicêtre Hôpital station.
