RUSSIA: Uralvagonzavod subsidiary Uraltransmash has agreed a leasing deal with the Vladikavkaz city authorities for the supply of 10 Type 71-407 trams.

Uraltransmash presented the updated design of its four-axle single-section tram last year. The 39% low-floor vehicles feature asynchronous traction motors.

Vladikavkaz has a 59 route-km network, although only 55 route-km is currently operational. Services are provided with a fleet of 26 trams, but the operator has a total of 59.
