Colas wins another contract for Casablanca tram lines

Casablanca tramway Casa Transport SA awarded Colas Rail a contract to build the low-voltage systems for T3 and T4 lines part of Casablanca tramway system.

The EUR 15 million project, which will last 30 months, includes studies and the installation of the low-voltage systems on track, including video surveillance, sound system, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), the multiservice network, time synchronisation, and telecoms.

“This new contract shows that there is a real bond, built on trust, between the Moroccan local authorities and Colas Rail, underlines Hervé Le Joliff, Chairman of Colas Rail. As in previous projects for the Casablanca tramway, our teams are fully mobilised to deliver an integrated, reliable and safe system to our historical partner.”

This contract follows those already won in 2021 for electrification including catenaries and electrical substations, and the laying of railway tracks for the central section of the two lines T3 and T4 of the Casablanca tramway.

As in previous projects for the Casablanca tramway, our teams are fully mobilised to deliver an integrated, reliable and safe system to our historical partner,” Hervé Le Joliff, Chairman of Colas Rail said.

Line T3 will serve 20 stations over a length of 14 km of double track platform, crossing on seven main road corridors. The line will have five transfer stops to the T1, T2 and T4 line, as well as to the bus services.

The 12.5 km Line T4, with a double track platform, will have 19 stations along 12 main streets. It is designed to have 4 transfer stops with the T1, T2 and T3 lines. The construction of T4 line requires the construction of two structures at the level of the crossing of the ONCF tracks as well as the A3 motorway.

These two lines will strengthen the public transport offer of the most populated city in Morocco, which has nearly 4 million inhabitants.

The works on the completion of the two tramway lines are expected to be completed in 2024 when Citadis X05 trams will operate the new connections.
