Luxtram and manufacturer CAF have revealed the design of the new trams being built for Luxembourg ‘s first modern light rail network.
CAF has developed the styling of its Urbos tram with designers Eric Rhinn, Michel Leonardi and Isabelle Corten.
CAF is supplying 21 high-capacity trams for the line – the first of which will arrive in the city at the start of 2017.
The new vehicles will be designed to negotiate a 3.6-kilometre catenary-free section of the line between Pont Rouge and the city’s main railway station.
The first tracks for the 16-kilometre tramway will be laid at the beginning of next year.
The first phase of the route between Luxexpo and Pont Rouge is scheduled to go into passenger service in 2017.
