Flood risk assessment for the Lyon-Turin HSR line

Flood risk assessment for the Lyon-Turin HSR line
Context & Issues

The section of the future high-speed rail line passing through the town of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne is liable to be flooded in the event of a breach on the embankments that protect it. A numerical model study of this risk was performed on behalf of the project developer, TELT (Tunnel Euralpin Lyon Turin).
