Beijing's first new tramway

CNR Dalian has been awarded a contract for 31 five-section trams: the first should be delivered by the end of this year. The 100% low-floor, air-conditioned, trams, a licensed version of the AnsaldoBreda Sirio design, will be equipped for both catenary and surface current (the Tramwave system) power collection. A 9.4km tramline is being built as the Xijiao line in the western suburbs, and should open in 2015 to carry passengers to the Xiangshan scenic resort in the Fragrant Hills of Haidian district.
