Two more days of tests... and the tram will "rest" for one day... Tuesday 19th, Grand Opening.

For now, we can use it free of charge... and the experience is good. Minor problems, normal in test periods, I guess... but in essence, the experience is good. Can't wait for the second phase to be up and running.

And me. I can't wait until the tram comes to Parque Goya (Which is almost in Huesca). Today I have ridden the tram to Valdespartera Xincheng and its streets named after movies. It's really good. Even I made a fantasy map with 7 metro and tram lines for Zaragoza.

Problems like what? I am asking because Belgrade bought the same model, just the narrow gauge version and the testing is due to being on May 3 until September

Here is how it looks (you can see the Zaragoza tram being assembled behind, the number 3120 - http://www.beograd.rs/download.php/d...trasnjost2.jpg)

Well, they have failed a few times. Energy failure, Pantograph not lifting... things like that.

Energy failure in the tram itself or in the network?

It was something in the tram... it got stuck,blocking the following.

In one occasion, it was in a key junction, staying in the middle of the crossing for 5 minutes... causing a bit of havoc.

On another occasion, a full loaded tram had to be emptied and passengers trasnferred to another one, as the first one would not go.

I guess with it being a new model, they still need to adjust it somehow...

But in essence, the tram works well, very silent and confortable, despite the wooden seats...

Zaragoza tramway was opened to traffic on april. Just half of line. The second half of line started one month later on works and last week the "cut" all the city centre because works.
It is estimated to have finished in april 2013.

In the firsts months the "half line" had 11% more passengers that forecasts

Second part of line 1 on works.

Photo taken from a Spanish thread:





It is just, just, besides the continuation of the phase 1 of line 1, opened in april 2011.

It is one of the mainest square of traffic, half of movements are impossible now and only one lane per way to cross it while the works.

Think difference when traffic congestion and tram runs with no disruption...

Tram works for phase 2 of Line 1 keeps on. They have been surveyed by archaeoligists because the line goes besides roman walls and other heritage buildings.
They are some recommendations and restrictions but I see every day a lot of people working there.

This square is where five main avenues crosses in the city centre and just the continuation of the current tram.
The photo is taken just from the point where current traject finishs and it will continue on the avenue that it is after the long bus.

Apart of this... at Zaragoza there is a small network of suburban trains as in other Spanish cities, called "cercanias".

http://www.renfe.com/viajeros/cercan...oza/index.html

The railway tunnel under the city has been closed for four months to build a central station where local trains will stop as well as most of regionals.

It will become a very important point of mobility, even if the line is very small.

After those four months of railway traffic closed, it was opened again yesterday. Station keeps on works but trains goes through the city at least.

Station open is stimated for February 2012


Can any moderator change the name of this thread to "Zaragoza: Tram and suburbarn"???
We could post about both rail transport systems in the same thread.

Zaragoza tram takes 3 million passengers in a "record time"
http://www.heraldo.es/noticias/zarag...po_record.html



Just less than four months after opening to service (and when in summer the number of passengers is really less than in the rest of the year), 3 millions passengers have taken Zaragoza tram.

Second phase of this line keeps on.
