Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) at 3 GHz (10 cm) toward a sub-field of the XXL-North 25 deg<SUP>2</SUP> field targeting the first supercluster discovered in the XXL Survey. The structure has been found at a spectroscopic redshift of 0.43 and extending over 0.̊35 × 0.̊1 on the sky. The aim of this paper is twofold. First, we present the 3 GHz VLA radio continuum observations, the final radio mosaic and radio source catalogue, and, second, we perform a detailed analysis of the supercluster in the optical and radio regimes using photometric redshifts from the CFHTLS survey and our new VLA-XXL data. Our final 3 GHz radio mosaic has a resolution of 3.̋2 × 1.̋9, and encompasses an area of 41' × 41' with rms noise level lower than ~ 20 μJy beam<SUP>-1</SUP>. The noise in the central 15' × 15' region is ≈ 11 μJy beam<SUP>-1</SUP>. From the mosaic we extract a catalogue of 155 radio sources with signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) ≥ 6, eight of which are large, multicomponent sources, and 123 (79%) of which can be associated with optical sources in the CFHTLS W1 catalogue. Applying Voronoi tessellation analysis (VTA) in the area around the X-ray identified supercluster using photometric redshifts from the CFHTLS survey we identify a total of seventeen overdensities at z<SUB>phot</SUB> = 0.35 - 0.50, 7 of which are associated with clusters detected in the XMM-Newton XXL data. We find a mean photometric redshift of 0.43 for our overdensities, consistent with the spectroscopic redshifts of the brightest cluster galaxies of seven X-ray detected clusters. The full VTA-identified structure extends over ~ 0.̊6 × 0.̊2 on the sky, which corresponds to a physical size of ~ 12 × 4 Mpc<SUP>2</SUP> at z = 0.43. No large radio galaxies are present within the overdensities, and we associate eight (S/N> 7) radio sources with potential group/cluster member galaxies. The spatial distribution of the red and blue VTA-identified potential group member galaxies, selected by their observed g - r colours, suggests that the clusters are not virialised yet, but are dynamically young, as expected for hierarchical structure growth in a ΛCDM universe. Further spectroscopic data are required to analyse the dynamical state of the groups. <P />The full catalogue is available as a queryable database table XXL_VLA_15 via the XXL Master Catalogue browser <A href="http://cosmosdb.iasf-milano.inaf.it/XXL">http://cosmosdb.iasf-milano.inaf.it/XXL</A>.
