The challenge for SPIE is to lay more than 660 metres of new electricity cabling under the cobblestones and to install the underground transformer substation.

SPIE was responsible for the design, installation and maintenance operations required for the set-up, completion and maintenance of the system and related activities, without impeding traffic.
