Trams for Angers

The French city of Angers (population of the agglomeration 226 900) has decided in favour of a steel wheel tramway for a 12-km north/south line to be built by 2009, and estimated to carry 35 000 passengers/day by 2010. The line will run within 400m of 57 000 residents and 21 000 jobs, and enjoy a six-minute service 19 hrs/day. Tenders are being invited for 15 32-m trams. The project is estimated to cost EUR 180 million. A second, east/west, line is being evaluated.
