Luxembourg is eagerly awaiting the inauguration of its new tram. Next month, the first car is set to be delivered from Spain to the Grand Duchy by “convoi exceptionnel”. The cars are fabricated by Spanish company CAF (Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles) in the city of Saragossa. Our new images straight out of the shop now show the state of production.
If everything goes as planned, the first tram will start operating by the end of 2017. In the initial phase, it will connect Luxexpo and the “red bridge” (Grand Duchess Charlotte bridge) on Kirchberg. Later on, it will be extended and ultimately, by 2020/2021, it should cover the complete distance from Findel to Kirchberg, then through the city centre, on to the main station and Howald and all the way to Cloche d’Or.
