Inauguration of the line D of the Bordeaux tramway
February 29, 2020 was the commissioning of the tramway line D for our Bordeaux Métropole client, after 2 years and a half of work on the project. This new line extends to the cities of Bordeaux, Le Bouscat, Bruges and Eysines.
The alliance is composed of: Colas South-West and Fayat TP for the Civil Works and Colas Rail, with its Urban Tracks (leader) and Catenary business units, associated with Alstom for the creation of 6.5km of railway and the overhead contact line. During the project, Colas Rail used a green way technique, developed by our Urban Tracks business unit. Thus, about 3800 linear meters were laid on line D, offering a pleasant aesthetic rendering, very much appreciated by residents.
A big thank you to all our Colas Rail employees who were very committed in this great project.
