Tramway de Casa : tracé arrêté, début des travaux en 2009




Si tout se déroule comme prévu, les travaux de construction de la première ligne du tramway de Casablanca démarreront en mai 2009. Ce chantier durera trois ans et débutera par le déplacement des différents réseaux d’infrastructures, notamment d’eau et d’assainissement. Sur 28 km, cette ligne qui part du quartier Moulay Rachid pour aboutir à deux terminus (au quartier des Facultés et à Hay Hassani) ratisse vraiment large pour que, dès sa mise en service, Casablanca puisse trouver un début de solution au problème ardu de la circulation urbaine. En effet, après Hay Moulay Rachid, le tramway transitera par Sidi Moumen avant de traverser Hay Mohammadi et longer les boulevards Ibn Tachfine et Ba H’mad pour pouvoir faire le lien avec la gare Casa Voyageurs et continuer à travers le Boulevard Mohammed V jusqu’à la place Maréchal. Le tramway empruntera ensuite l’avenue Hassan II et le boulevard Abdelmoumen jusqu’au rond-point Bachkou pour rallier la gare ferroviaire Oasis, puis le Technopark et le boulevard Panoramique pour finir sa course au quartier des Facultés.

Un coût de 200 MDH par kilomètre !

Selon les estimations des responsables de la ville, ce parcours prendra en tout et pour tout une heure. Quelque 200 000 voyageurs seront transportés quotidiennement dans deux rames couplées de 30 mètres de long chacune. Un départ est prévu toutes les cinq minutes. A titre de comparaison, aujourd’hui le réseau des autobus urbains (M’dina Bus et sociétés privées) transporte chaque jour 900 000 personnes, soit 14 % des déplacements des Casablancais contre 18 % pour les taxis rouges et blancs. Le reste du transport est assuré par les voitures particulières, les sociétés de transport du personnel, sans oublier le transport informel qui joue un rôle non négligeable.

Reste à trouver le financement. Il y a de fortes chances pour que l’expérience de Rabat (projet du Bouregreg) soit prise en exemple. C’est-à-dire que le projet pourrait être adossé aux grands projets immobiliers du Grand Casablanca, en l’occurrence la ville nouvelle de Zenata et l’ensemble immobilier Anfa, explique-t-on auprès de la commune urbaine de Casablanca.

Il faut dire que le budget prévisionnel est conséquent. Sachant en effet qu’un kilomètre de tramway revient à environ 200 MDH, le coût global de cette première ligne se situera autour de 6 milliards de DH hors matériel roulant.

Pour gagner du temps, les appels d’offres pour l’attribution du marché seront lancés bien avant l’achèvement des dernières études d’avant-projet en cours, qui font suite aux études techniques et de définition du réseau. Celles-ci, rappelons-le, ont retenu la construction de deux lignes de tramway et d’une ligne de métro allant de la ville de Mohammédia jusqu’à l’aéroport Mohammed V, soit plus d’une trentaine de kilomètres dont les études sont réalisées par l’Office national des chemins de fer (ONCF), partie prenante dans le projet de métro.

Quand cette première ligne entrera en fonction, on aura assisté à un début de solution pour résoudre le déficit en transport dans la métropole économique.

Les projets actuels obéissent à un Schéma directeur d’aménagement urbain (SDAU) clairement défini qui intègre un Plan de déplacement urbain (PDU). C’est dire que le tracé du tramway n’est pas défini au détriment de l’esthétique de la ville.

Par ailleurs, un souci réel existe dans le plan d’ensemble pour ce qui est de la complémentarité du nouveau réseau avec celui des autobus urbains (gares ferroviaires et gare routière Ouled Ziane), mais aussi avec les nouveaux échangeurs en construction.

Pour le moment, les commissions continuent de travailler sur plusieurs volets du transport urbain, y compris sur la révision du réseau exploité par M’dina Bus. La récente décision - une première -, qui a consisté à sanctionner cinq sociétés privées d’autobus pour non-respect du cahier des charges, s’inscrit dans la même logiquen.

A city with 3 million inhabitants needs a subway system and not a tram network. The same that trams do can be done with buses, so tram is luxury and not functional. Metro would be the right decission!

Tram is a solution for not to dense cities with large avenues and a population above 250 000 and under 750 000. In Morocco we need tramnetwork in cities like Oujda, Tétouan, Kénitra, Safi, Meknès and metronetwork in cities like Casablanca, Rabat/Salé, Fès, Agadir and Tangier. Marrakech needs definitely a tramnetwork. Maybe they can opt for a metronetwork to keep the traditional cityview, on the other hand, MArrakech is not a very big city in square meters, like the metroareas of Agader, Casa, Rabat, etcetera.

Just one fact is enough to say the tramnetwork of Casablanca will not be sufficient. Just to travel from one terminus to the other, they need maybe 60minutes...

I think there are two important differences between buses and trams, less/no polution and more capacity.

But besides that, I also think a metro network would be the right decision for a city like Casablanca.

If the plans stay how they are currently, Casablanca will only get one line of metro and a (partly) underground RER, so actually two underground lines of public transport.

Besides these two lines, Casablanca unfortunatly made a choice for a tramway network. The main reason is the price tag, a tramway is much cheaper. And given the fact that Casa has a huge problem with financing it's projects, a tramway is not a strange choice. Another advantage is that a tramway can make more stops.

But i'm very curious how this tramway will be implemented. For example the first tramway will go through very densely populated areas, with a lot of traffic.
And traffic is already a huge mess in Casablanca, it will only be bothered more by a tramway which needs a lot of space and most of time has the right of way. But maybe they can tackle this problem if they elevate the tramway in some parts...??

Let's not exaggerate things . The 2005 Census puts the greater Casablanca region's population at 3.2 Millions

There is only one city that desperatly needs mass transit:
Greater Casablanca has almost 4 million habitants and its area is quite compareable to big european cities.


Here is my network:

KLICK ME

4 metro lines: 54km
1 suburban line: 60km
altogether 85 station


Probably in Rabat-Sale it would be another candidate for a small 2 lines metro network.
Cities like Tangier, Fez, Marrakech or Agadir are simply to small. It would be nice to see modern 1m tram systems there.


I found that maps, that show how compact even the very populous Cairo is:

Your projected lines are great! Seems that you know the habits of Casablanca people. I also like the benchmark with different cities as well...
How long have you lived in Casablanca?

I never lived in Casa, but visited it several times. I generally stay in Tangier every 1 or 2 years for some weeks and travel from there around (I'm not Moroccan ).
