Lódz opens tram extension

An extended and modernised Route 10 of the Lódz tram network was inaugurated on October 31. The first trams on the new route were Bombardier CityRunners, as the Pesa Swing trams ordered for the main east-west axis will not be delivered in December.

This 4.5 km extension with eight stops runs east from Augustów to Olechów, serving a district with more than 20 000 inhabitants.

As well as this extension, the USD 129.5m project included construction of a 2km tram tunnel in the city centre, track relaying, reconstruction of Piotrkowska Centrum station with a new overall roof, new passenger information systems, and resignalling with priority signalling for trams at road intersections.
