Perhaps it's because they're Bredas. They have to get them to work first.

Poor Zhuhai. You know you're in trouble when it takes longer to test than it does to build.

Huai’an first LRT line nears completion
Tuesday, September 08, 2015



CONSTRUCTION of the first light rail line in the Chinese city of Huai'an, in Jiangsu province, is nearing completion and the first LRVs are expected to be certified for operation by the end of the year

Construction of the 20.3km line, which will be entirely catenary-free, from City Stadium to the Chuzhou district of Huain'an started in December 2013. The project has an estimated cost of Yuan 3.5bn ($US 550m)

I've read Huai'an (Jiangsu, Eastern China) tram was put into operation on 28 December. Google Earth has very recent imagery, as it shows the whole line already finished. This is a catenary-free line, and trams run on super capacitors. Oddly enough, the depot is not located near one of the termini, but rather about halfway along the line, exactly between Sanya Lu and Banzha stops. Most stops are island stops, so doors open on the left. Ashis Mitra now has no excuse to make any questions .

Besides that, Huai'an is yet another entry in the lengthy list of Chinese cities with metro plans. So far, 5 urban and 2 suburban lines are drafted, though nothing is solid for now.

"Second stage" test rides on Zhuhai tram to start this year including 6,000 members of the public being invited to ride.

http://www.zhmrt.com.cn/info_482.html

This has been going on for a very long time and makes you wonder whether there is some problem with the Breda technology or trams.

It is starting to look like Zhuhai will be the latest entrant in the annals of history. It has been under Hitachi management for a couple months now, but that is unlikely to retroactively improve existing projects.

So Zhuhai tram, like the Washington DC streetcar, is irretrievably doomed (albeit for different reasons)?

Yes apparently there are innocent pockets of the world where their reputation hasn't reached.

I hope the Chinese can eventually give us some impartial comparative feedback on their experience with the various models of European trams. In Europe the tram market is more nationalistic-based and it's difficult to get any impartial view.

This are not Ansaldobreda trams, licenced version of Ansaldobreda Sirio but completely constructed in China.

Of course, but since it's copied technology will this result in removing the bugs of the original?

Possibly the Chinese are good at reverse engineering designs and improving upon them. (eg the CRH second generation rolling stock)
