The Dutch consultancy and engineering company Arcadis has been commissioned to design a second underground railway line in the French city of Rennes. The commission involves an amount of eight billion euros.

The new underground line will be 14 kilometres long, 10 of which will actually be situated underground. The new line will be four kilometres longer than the North-South line currently under construction in Amsterdam. Arcadis was also involved in the construction of Rennes' first underground railway line.

The new line will include a drilled tunnel, an excavated, roofed-over tunnel, a fly-over and 15 stations. Arcadis' commission includes the design of the tunnels and four of the underground stations.
