France – Val’Tram – Aubagne LRT

SYSTRA won the project management contract to build the new Val’Tram LRT line, running between the centre of Aubagne and La Bouilladisse to the north of the town.

The Val’Tram project will make use of the 12 km disused single track Valdonne suburban line to La Bouilladisse. A 2.5 km section will then be added to Aubagne mainline station. It comprises 12 stops.

After inaugurating its first line in 2014, Aubagne decided to extend its public transport network and commissioned the Val’Tram line, which is due for completion late 2019.
