is there a reason for middle segments to be like this:



I don't understand.

Since both parts can't be spared cause there isn't a control desk in these kind of segments; why not to simply build a continuos 10 segments tram?

Please, enlighten me!

My be, it will be done in the future.

40 years ago, no tram exceeded 25 meters.
Actually, 32 or 43 m is usual.
In Budapest, 3 years ago arrived some 54 meters long Combino trams.
Siemens is preparing the AVENIO model, possibly 72 meters long...

http://www.google.com/search?client=...utf-8&oe=utf-8

But think about : If one tram is hurted par an another vehicle (truck for example), it's better to just retray half of the train than the whole train, no ?

The tram is 65m long. 32m per vehicles and less than 1 meter for the system between them.

We dealed about it on moroccan forum, and I explained that Paris system is better that Rabat system because you can spared vehicles on week-end, and on "empty" hours.

We didn't found answer to this option. We only guess that this type of tram is cheaper.

There is a common part between 2 lines. 8 minutes between each tram, and 4 mins on common part. So, tram will only circulate on double vehicles even if it would be able to circulate with simple vehicle. And years after years, the interval will be reduce between trains.

For 10 continous segment train, I don't if it exists on Alstom. Maybe (an other time), that it's better to stop for maintenance or any other problem only a 2 32m vehicles than 2 64m when a problem is localised on a half part.

Sorry for my english.

A Rabat le tramway est conçu pour fonctionner uniquement en double rame (2 postes de conduites).



Je change le titre de 66 à 65m pour la longeur des tramway. Le système d'accrochage ne mesure pas plus d'1m.

Is it possible to build return loops at the end of each line? With these loops, units could be spared because they wouldn't need two control desks, one at each side of the unit.

I don't know it exactly, but I've seen unidirectional trams in several cities, e.g. Amsterdam and Toronto.

NORMAL MINIMUM RADIUS FOR THIS ALSTOM TRAMS IS 25 METERS.
THEY HAVE RIGID BOGIES (THEY DON'T TURN) SO IF YOU DO TIGHTER CURVE IT WILL HANDLE IT BUT WITH SUPER HIGH SQUEEL AND RAIL WEAR.

Another factor to consider is the extension of the network. Notament the line 1 (red) with the extension south of 2km has already been adopted to Hay Riad neighborhood. This is a neighborhood with all ministeries and big administrations which moved from inner city.



RABAT {Hay Riad}
