Central Paris doesn't need trams...you already have the metro and RER express trains to speed you across the central area.
Trams are better suited to the suburban areas where the cost of building heavy rail can not be justified.

Apart from an eventual transformation of the line 91 into a tram, no.
Even this transformation is not much more than a vision for the moment.
Like PeFe said, Central Paris is already well served by heavy public transportation (metro/RER).

This is to complete the station.
Some stations were not completely done when the line opened.

I'm seeing a lot of negative comments about Translohr here with absolutely no evidence supplied to back them up. It strikes me as a cheaper alternative to trams for smaller cities and towns. Its use in Paris mystifies me a bit because of incompatibility with other lines (I get RATP's reasoning with that but you never know what future needs might be) but for places like Padua it seems like a neat solution. I'd be very interested to know Translohr's instillation cost per kilometre against a conventional tramway. I'll write to them about that but I'd like it from a non biased source too.

Cool news about T9 and T10 by the way. It'll be nice to see some of the fragmented tram lines in Paris start to link together.

Because as I often said Paris trams are just planned to be lines covering gap of heavy transportation, Paris tram lines were not planned to become a network or act like one.

T9 and T10 are separated and both lines will never been linked. Anyway T9 and T10 will have a transfer with at least one other tram line.
T9 with T3a and T10 with T6.

Cheaper alternative?

Padua already decided to build no more Translohr lines

Actually, Padova decided to build no more tram lines, neither “on rail” nor “on tire”, and being the existing one a Translohr has almost nothing to do with it.
The new mayor of Padova, Massimo Bitonci (Lega Nord), elected last year, had based his electoral campaign upon an car-centric mobility politic: under the rallying cry “assuring the citizens the right of using their cars”, he promised the city will get rid of PT reserved lanes, reduce ZTL areas, implement new car parks in the city center and, obviously, won't build tram lines anymore; consequently, after his victory he stopped the second tram line project, losing funds already allocated for it.


PS As an Italian, I'm not at all proud that in my country such an agenda can lead to a victory.

Oh gosh, that sounds like what many parts of the US are going through right now. Mayors and governors who want to stop transit expansion in favor of promoting pro-car policies. It's not healthy in the long term.
