ARCADIS N.V. : ARCADIS WINS PROJECT AND PROGRAM MANAGEMENT FOR THE MAJOR GRAND
                 PARIS METRO PROJECT IN PARIS REGION, FRANCE

ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading pure play global engineering and
consultancy firm, today announced that it has been awarded a contract to
provide project and program management, as well as technical advisory services
to the Société du Grand Paris, the authority for the ambitious "Grand Paris
Express" metro lines in the Paris region in France. This 16 year contract
represents a total value to ARCADIS of €40 million. Further financial details
were not disclosed. 

The Grand Paris Express project is over 200 kilometers in length of new metro
lines and will mainly be realized underground. The contract awarded to ARCADIS
is referred to as the 100 kilometers of "red line" and will connect the
suburbs around Paris, which are now connected through the center of the city,
thus putting pressure on existing commuter systems. The construction cost
estimate for the total project is over €20 billion. It will be delivered in
the next 16 years.

The Grand Paris Scheme includes above and underground transportation,
stations, building and social infrastructure projects to enhance the economic
dynamism in the Paris region. The "red line" is one of the first major
investments in this scheme and ARCADIS will be involved in all project and
program management services including contract, cost, risk, and time
management, environmental procedures, technical advisory including tunnels,
underground stations, and mobility, and in the interfaces with other parts of
the Parisian transportation system.

Friedrich Schneider, Executive Board member responsible for the European
activities of ARCADIS on the project: "Our extensive capabilities in project
and program management, broad expertise in underground metro systems and our
ability to take an integrated view to projects positioned us well for this
challenge. Together with our project partners ARTELIA and BG, we have
convinced the Société du Grand Paris we are the right team. We are proud to be
at the beginning of a long journey of raising public transportation in Paris
to the next level with the Grand Paris Scheme."
