Bordeaux orders more Alstom LRVs
Wednesday, January 06, 2016



BORDEAUX's Metropolitan Council has placed a €28m order with Alstom for a further 10 Citadis LRVs to provide additional fleet capacity for the expansion of its 79km light rail network

The new 44m-long LRVs will enter service in 2018 and are identical to the existing fleet of 105 trams all of which have been ordered since 2000. They are equipped with Alstom's APS ground-level power supply system, which was pioneered in Bordeaux, and can accommodate up to 300 passengers

FRANCE: Test running on an extension of tram Line A in Strasbourg commenced on January 14. Passenger services on the 1·7 km extension south to Illkirch-Graffenstaden are expected to start in the spring.

Meanwhile, work continues on the 3·9 km eastern extension of Line D to Kehl in Germany. Tracklaying on the 300 m bridge over the River Rhine is expected to take place between March and May. This is being carried out by Alstom, which has also installed electrification equipment on both extensions

Guided bus to tram plan confirmed
05 Feb 2016

Impressions of the light rail route were issued by the city authority on February 6. The network would be operated by Keolis under the Twisto brand



FRANCE: The municipality of Caen has confirmed its intention to develop a three-line light rail network for opening by the end of 2019.

The majority of the tramway would be converted from the existing TVR guided bus network under plans first announced in December 2011, but a feasibility study has suggested that several sections of new rail infrastructure should also be added to better serve local traffic generating hubs and optimise network operation.

Three routes are envisaged:
  • T1: Hérouville Saint Clair – Ifs Jean Vilar;
  • T2: Campus 2 – Presqu’île;
  • T3: Théâtre – Fleury sur Orne

By the way, did new musical themes get added for the stops on the new extension. Strasbourg seems to have had them since the 1990s, but except for Mulhouse, also in Alsace, the rest of the world hasn't follow suit.
Have there ever been complaints about them?

Musical themes at stops are very common in major Japanese cities, so I'd guess probably not.

Once I mentioned them on another forum, but I got two other posters, one of them who used the system in Mulhouse, write unfavourably of them. One saying they are awful, another saying music is annoying.

Hmm, must be a French/Euro thing. Japanese seem to love them, and the few instances in the US are accepted. Maybe the songs just aren't that good in the French application?

The French seem to love going crazy with art applications in public transportation. That means you get cool stuff. And ugly stuff as well (including stupid music with announcements).

Paris uses also announcements with music on tramway T3:



Porte d'Aubervilliers is my favorite one!

Does Mulhouse still have it's announcement music? When I mentioned it on railpage, two posters there, one of them who had used the system, said they were annoying.
Have there been attempts to revoke them?

St Etienne receives first CAF tram
Thursday, July 07, 2016



THE first of 16 CAF low-floor LRVs for the 11.9km metre-gauge tramway in St Etienne arrived in the French city on July 1

The five-section, low-floor LRVs are based on CAF's Urbos platform but have been specially adapted to St Etienne's metre-gauge network through the use of a 2.15m-wide carbody. Unlike the network's existing vehicles, the CAF LRVs are bidirectional and feature additional doors for greater operational flexibility. Each 35m-long vehicle will accommodate 238 passengers, 34 of them seated
