The Grenoble tramway: Alstom switches on Line E

12/03/2014

On 11 March, Alstom switched on the southern section of the new Line E tramway network in Grenoble.

Alstom provided the infrastructure and the seven electrical substations placed along the line to  supply the tram network and its equipment with electricity.

The line’s connection to the electric network will enable tests to be carried out on the systems before the tramway’s entry into commercial operation,  scheduled next June.

The installation work will then continue on the line extension between Grenoble and Fontanil-Cornilon until September.
