The Nice tramway is up and running!
published onAugust 23, 2018

As of this summer, the first trams on the West-East line are running between the CADAM administrative centre and the Magnan stop. The line is scheduled to be fully operational by September 2019. Mobility is responsible for the new-generation light rail signalling system.

Passengers can now travel on a section of line 2, between the CADAM administrative centre and the Magnan stop, inaugurated on 30 June. This section is connected to the Charles Ginésy maintenance centre, with links to a 630-space park and ride facility. Mobility's light rail signalling system is in operation at the maintenance centre and at both termini.

This summer, Mobility staff were hard at work running tests on the section serving the airport. This new section will be commissioned at the end of 2018.

The next stage for Mobility is to install and test the system in the tunnel, including the implementation of a spacing management system to demarcate track sections on which only one tram may be present, and an automatic train stopping system designed to stop a tram if it passes a signal.

The tunnel will be commissioned in two stages: up to the Jean Médecin stop by the end of June 2019, and as far as the port by the end of September 2019.

The last stage will be to complete line 3, which, in early 2020, will connect the Saint-Isidore terminus to line 2 from the Digue des Français, passing via the Allianz Riviera stadium.
