  • Alstom’s fleet of 100 locally built Flexity light rail vehicles has supported a vibrant local rollingstock industry in Victoria with more than 50% local content

1 October 2021 – Alstom has delivered the 100th, and final Flexity light rail vehicle (LRV) to its customer, the Department of Transport in Victoria. As Australia’s only end-to-end manufacturer of LRVs, Alstom designed the vehicles to meet the specific characteristics of the Melbourne tram network, including increased accessibility. The trams were locally manufactured at Alstom’s Dandenong rollingstock facility including more than 50% local content, supporting around 75 employees and a thriving ecosystem of local suppliers in Victoria.

The tram is based on Alstom’s popular low-floor Flexity LRV platform, which is the largest fleet of modern low-floor trams operating on the world’s largest tram network, spanning over 250 km of double track. The fleet is approximately one fifth of the network’s overall fleet.

“In Australian rollingstock terms, this is a truly iconic fleet – the Flexity was made in Melbourne, for Melbourne – and Alstom is proud to be part of this story for Victoria.”

Mark Coxon
Alstom’s Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand

The original contract for the first 50 trams was signed in 2010 with further orders for an additional 20, 10, 10 and 10 vehicles awarded between 2015 and 2019, proving the performance, quality and accessibility credentials of the platform. Alstom’s LRV fleet in Victoria also includes 41 Citadis X02 LRVs, taking the total number of vehicles operating on the network to 141.

Alstom’s Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, Mark Coxon said, “This is a significant milestone for our operations in Victoria and I would like to thank and congratulate our team and all the local suppliers who have worked tirelessly to make this happen. We are thrilled to have delivered these 100 Flexity LRVs to our customer, creating a new milestone for Melbourne’s much-loved tram network.”
