FRANCE: DISCONNECTION OF THE T4 TRAM-TRAIN TO CLICHY-SOUS-BOIS AND MONTFERMEIL
Duration of the project
- Tramway line 4 of the Île-de-France (T4) is a 7.9km-long tram-train line operated by the French Railway Operator SNCF
- Inaugurated on November 20, 2006 between Aulnay-sous-Bois and Bondy, in the Seine-Saint-Denis department of the Île-de-France region, the tram-train is a specific light-rail public transport system. In fact, tram-train combines the flexibility of the tramway transportation system with greater speed of train, by running through an urban tramway network to railway lines (shared with conventional trains).
- The T4 Tram-Train in the Parisian Region is the result of the transformation and complete double-tracking of the Bondy to Aulnay-sous-Bois line, known as the Les Coquetiers line, opened in 1875, which it uses throughout its route. It has thus become the first French line to use tram-train equipment, although it is operated entirely in tramway mode (visual driving, right-hand traffic, tramway Signaling, etc.).
Scope of work
