Caen reveals light rail plans
Wednesday, November 05, 2014



A light rail network is the centrepiece of a new transport plan for the French city of Caen, which was revealed on November 5 by Mr Joël Bruneau, president of the municipality of Caen la mer, and Mr Rodolphe Thomas, president of local transport authority Viacités

The 17.1km two-line network will have 31 stations and will largely replace the TVR guided trolleybus system, which has been beset by technical problems since it opened in 2002.

Line 1 will be 15.4km long with 25 stations and will link Caen Campus 2 and Herouville in the north with the city centre and the mainline station, before continuing south with separate branches serving Fleury-sur-Orne, where the depot will be located, and Jean Vilar

Keolis, RATP and Veolia Transdev operate almost all the urban transit networks in France.

EIB to finance Nice airport light rail link
Friday, December 05, 2014



NICE Côte dAzur Metropolitan Council has signed a €250m loan agreement with the European Investment Bank to finance construction of a light rail line linking the harbour and the city centre with the city's airport

The 11.3km Line T2 will link Airport Terminal 2 and Nikaia Administrative Centre in the west with Port de Nice in the east. In order to minimise the impact of construction in the city centre and offer shorter journey times, a 3.2km section of the route in central Nice will be in tunnel with four underground stations.

The line will have 20 stations and is initially expected to carry 104,000 passengers per day, increasing to 140,000 in the medium term. The journey time between the airport and Jean Médicin in the city centre will be 26 minutes with trams operating at three-minute headways at peak times.

A fleet of 19 44m-long low-floor LRVs will be procured for Line T2, each capable of accommodating up to 300 passengers

Saint-Etienne selects CAF trams
10 Dec 2014



FRANCE: Saint-Etienne has selected CAF to supply 16 Urbos trams for its metre gauge network. The contract, announced on December 10, is worth €42m, with the first vehicles scheduled to be delivered in early 2016.

In contrast to the current fleet, the 100% low-floor five-section trams would be bidirectional. They would be 33 m long and 2 150 mm wide.

CAF has supplied trams to Nantes and Besançon in France, and was recently awarded a contract to refurbish 36 two-car metro trainsets in Lyon

Current rolling stock is Alstom TFS - the same ones are running on Paris tram line 1. Taken from Wikipedia:

No, it's not a TFS. Those trams were built by Alsthom and Vevey and are in fact very similar to the Vevey trams previously built for Geneva :

The TFS is standard-gauge and is much bigger.

€450m for urban transport projects
18 Dec 2014





FRANCE: The government announced on December 18 that it would be providing €450m to fund 99 urban transport projects with an estimated total cost of €5∙2bn. Including 15 light rail schemes totalling 81 km as well four metro lines with a combined length of 27 km, the projects are expected to create 50 000 jobs ‘very quickly’, according to Ségolène Royal, Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development & Energy.

Local authorities were invited to submit projects that would encourage modal shift from the private car, foster sustainable development and improve connectivity. With the cost of individual projects ranging from €110 000 to €420m, the government will on average be providing 16% of total scheme cost, on the condition that work starts before December 31 2017.

To help complete funding packages, state-owned investment bank Caisse des Dépôts is making €5bn of ‘green growth’ loan funding available at a preferential interest rate of 1∙75

What ever happened to the planned RER system for Lyon? Any planned upgrades for TER systems?

We are still waiting for a solution to the Part-Dieu railway tracks (north and south side) issue. But you know, Lyon, the second city in France with 2.2 millions inhabitants, is far from being a priority for the French State.

There are only 4 railwaytracks after and before the station and already too many trains.

Avignon approves slimmed-down tram project
Wednesday, February 25, 2015



AVIGNON's troubled light rail project took another twist on February 24 when, after three-and-a-half hours of debate, Greater Avignon Council voted in favour of a plan to implement the project with a reduced specification

Previously the city planned to invest €250m in the construction of a two-line 14km network, but work was suspended in March 2014 following the election of socialist mayor Mrs Cécile Helle, who opposed the project.

Under the revised plan the city will construct a single 6km line from Saint Roch to Saint Charmand - Bel Air with two high-frequency bus routes serving the hospital and Agroparc. The total budget for the project is €135m, including €117m for the tram line
