Second phase of line 1 Zaragoza tramway goes on.

Photo taken this morning.

It is the square in city centre with more traffic in all the city.

The first phase, opened to passengers since April, finishes in the avenue in the centre. Last stop is, on the photo, just over the white little van.





EDIT: The same square (view from opposite side) just one month ago

Another photo. Just taken from the opposite corner of last message.

We can see that Goya station for commuter and regional trains has almost all the roof set.

In the photo it appears a tramway which is perpendicular to commuter train in that point.

Not only Zaragoza but for the region of Aragon entirely.

This weekend, in the city of Alcañiz, it will run the Grand Prix of Aragon of Moto GP (http://www.motogp.com/en/events/Aragon/2011)


The bus company HIFE will have special buses from Zaragoza, Valencia, Barcelona and cities in the middle to the circuit at Alcañiz, as well as possibilities of shuttle to other cities, including the Madrid airport.

http://www.hife.es/public/media/imag...0motorland.pdf


Furthermore, between the city of Alcañiz and the circuit there will be a free bus every 10 minutes the day of the races.

This week the second Public Works minister has visited the works of Zaragoza-Goya station.

It will be a very small station but located very close to centre.


Currently there is one commuter train every hour (every 30 minutes in peak hours) in each directions and will stop there too.

Regional trains that crosses that part will stop. These are not too many but will help to stop not only in the central station but also in the city centre.


It is stimated to open it in january-february 2012

Inside a tram. This was last Monday between Fernando el Católico (Where the new commuter train station will be) and Gran Vía (The current terminus of the line):


(It says mistakenly we are at Mago de Oz, the other terminus. It was as shown all the way)

The CNGL photo is taken inside the tramway where the photo of message 105 is taken.

On the street we have the tramway (where... nowadays, just half of the line, the other half is on works such I have posted some pics).

Under the street, and in the other direction there is the railway tunnel (same route than since 150 years ago). Using that tunnel they have made a commuter train and finnally they will open a station in that point, the nearest to city centre.

It will be opened next winter. This week it received the visit of the second minister.

About Zaragoza Tramway... this week it took the 4th million passenger after 5 months (since april 2011).

It is on service only half of Line 1.

The second half, on works are in the following pictures. They have been taken by different forumers. I've put them from south (connection with part in service the first of all) to north (very close to the end). I write too the month of the photo and the forumer who posted each photo.

At Zaragoza, with the same touchless card you can pay any journey within buses and tramway. There are different cards depending of the zone but 98% uses the same one.
With the same card you can shuttle between buses and trams within one hour (the credit will be discounted in your card when using the first bus and you can get all you need within one hour. You must pass the touchless card but will be free)

It is a pity but commuter train do not apply. They have different fares and no shuttle.

There is today a news about working for shuttling. It is not only important for some faster journeys... in fact, we can compare to the Parisian RER but... with a one hour frequency almost always.
For me, the most important is that some bus lines to small towns in the area will be able to be changed. They will be able to finish in the nearest commuter train station and going fast to the centre. The time will be similar. Will need time for transfer but will be faster on train.

Let's find differences:


This picture is from Zaragoza tramway. It has been taken from forumer Chusanch blog (the one who opened this same thread)




This photo is from Belgrade tramway and has been posted by forumer Boris90





Which differences do you find apart of seat colours?


(both tramways have been built in the same factory)

I don't remember well, but i think Belgrade tram system uses 1000mm gauge.
(PS: More than likely Tallinn will get 14 of CAF Urbos 3's with 1067mm gauge by selling CO2 quota to Spain

Urbos 3 is built in a factory located here.

http://www.caf.es/ingles/home/index.php
http://maps.google.es/maps?saddr=pla...10,11&t=h&z=15

(I have pointed the most nearest traject of the tramway, the current and the one on works. Impossible to point the exact one)

It is made by the company CAF (http://www.caf.es/ingles/home/index.php)
It has two factories, one in the Basque country and another at Zaragoza.

This week are major fiestas at Zaragoza. Since yesterday until all next week tramway runs 24h.

One tramway every 5 min 07:00 to 24:00 and every 7 min from 00:00 to 07:00

Two or three security personnel are in each tramway while night as far as it goes to a zone with leisure and concerts.
