Vinci Construction teams are hard at work.

70 Touréchaf are being used to key the girders. And 140 tonnes of Tourétai fitted with 6000 ml M20 wooden beams support the pre-slabs for the podium around the stadium.    

The planned 60,000 seats in the Lyon stadium will be ready for the Euro 2016 football tournament.
