FRANCE: Grand Avignon council and its project organisation Tecelys have selected the civil works contractor to build a tram line in the city.

Led by NGE Group subsidiary TSO, the consortium includes Alstom, Guintoli, EHTP and Agilis. Civil works are scheduled to be complete in January 2019 and will include the construction of 5·4 route-km of track, with 10 stops and a maintenance depot.

In 2013 the city council selected Alstom to supply 24 Citadis Compact trams for what was to be a two-line network. In 2015 the council voted to build one tram line instead of the two originally planned.
