I'm carrying on, if I may.
Now, Sallaz station as it is inside.

The station is covered but still onground indeed. The roof can be walked on.

In July 2011 there was an ad campaign of Swiss elections - and I was living there for a bit less than 1.5 months. So, the ad consisted of a slogan saying "Determine the face of Switzerland". Sometimes I noticed strange variations as earrings, women lips, thick beards etc.

The station is not typical of Lausanne metro as the platform lies between the tracks:

The basement of the lift for disabled.


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/452084/

The ad was not ill-timed as it is now. Pity, I didn't have time to share the shots in time.

Please, be seated (c) Obama:


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/452086/

A dustbin. There's a nice designed grill between the ladder and the floor to avoid water accumulation on the floor itself.

Getting on the train. Londonian "Mind the gap" doesn't make sense here:


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/452088/

To be continued. The next station to show is the CHUV. Please, feel free to asl me questions.

I'd read on this forum (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=981118) that the M3 was going to be light rail. Have they definitely decided on a metro ?

I think it was posted earlier that a portion will be Metro (a part of it overlapping with M2), and the other portion LRT.

Hi! M3 would be exactly the same technology that M2: with the train MP 89 TL (based on the MP 89 CA from Paris): being fully automatic without the use of any driver or cab and with rubber tyred.

FUTURE M3 STATION:

M3 station: Marroniers
Image: DR


M3 station: Casernes
DR


M3 station: Beaulieu
DR


M3 station: Chauderon
DR


Between the stations "Grancy" and "Lausanne-Flon", M2 and M3 operate on two distinct parallel route to relieve the overloaded line. The rate will be every minute on this section. Between "Ouchy" and "Grancy", the two lines are on the same route.

Neat renderings of M3.

I would guess that the rolling stock for the new line would be derived from the newer MP 05 from Paris. The MP 05 is basically a carbon copy of the MP 89, but with many technological advancements (including air conditioning). Since Lausanne already has the MP 89 derivative (MP 89TL), I can only guess that the new stock will be a derivative of the MP 05 (MP 05TL).

It would only be logical that the next rolling stock would be based off the Paris MP 05, unless the transit authority chose a different stock (highly doubtful).

Let me guess....barbed wire at the top of the lighting fixtures to prevent people from jumping over the PSDs or committing vandalism?

This is indeed a train system in Switzerland that is truly world-class.

Speaking of which, I have a question though:
Does it start to get overcrowded/congested at certain times?

Yes, unfortunately there are periods where congestion is so important that some passengers are unable to get inside the train. This is way the trains have been refurbished by eliminating some seats and therefore increasing their capacity as well as increasing the top limit frequency.

Bad guess. For one it isn't barbed wire, secondly it is a simple bird deterrent to stop birds sitting on the lights and craping on the floor and the passengers..

Swiss government approves Lausanne LRT
Thursday, March 10, 2016



SWITZERLAND's Federal Office of Transport (BAV) has approved construction of the initial 4.6km phase of the light rail network in Lausanne

The 10-station Line T1 will run west from an interchange with metro lines M1 and M2 at Flon in the city centre, following Rue de Genéve and Avenue des Morges to Préslaz-les-Roses in the district of Malley and continuing to Perrelet, where the line's depot will be located, before terminating outside the Swiss Federal Railways station at Renens

So according to this site, the projected opening for M3 is in 2025.
http://www.lausanne.ch/lausanne-en-b...-forts/m3.html

The does sound about right when considering the construction is projected to begin in 2018. By the time 2025 comes around, Paris should have its planned MP 14 railcars operating. So my guess is that the rolling stock for M3 will likely be a derivative of the MP 14, but perhaps designed to look like an MP 05.

Lausanne metro expansion contracts awarded
24 May 2017



SWITZERLAND: The canton of Vaud has awarded two contracts to increase capacity on the automated metro in Lausanne. The project includes the construction of a third line.

The network operated by Transports Lausannois is struggling to cope with growing ridership. To deal with this, the city is undertaking the Strong Axes project to increase capacity on the existing Line m2 and to expand the network

Similar article from the International Railway Journal

Quote:
The project will address the urgent need for more capacity on Line M2, which has a design capacity of 25 million passengers but carried 28 million passengers in 2014. New rolling stock is being acquired for the line and a second tunnel will be constructed between Grançy and Flon, which will make Line M2 double-track for its entire length. The tunnel will include a new station beneath the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) station, which is being redeveloped as part of the Léman 2030 project.
