IVU Traffic Technologies will deliver its standard solution, IVU.suite for the planning and dispatch of the new Luxembourg tram’s vehicles and personnel.
The planners are already using IVU.suite to help them develop the first timetables and deployment scenarios. The last tram in Luxembourg was decommissioned in 1964. This means that there are no experiences to be drawn on, and the entire timetable planning must be created from scratch. For this, the planners first simulate the effects of multiple timetable variations in the software in order to determine the best deployment times and headways. A rule editor that is directly integrated into the program interface makes it easy to flexibly create various scenarios.
The Luxembourg tram is the environmentally friendly, comfortable and modern solution to growing transport needs in the European capital. The new trams will help to reduce amounts of heavy traffic and enable rapid connections between important destinations. In its final expansion stage, the 16 km long route will stretch from the airport via the city centre to Cloche d’Or. The opening of the first section in the Kirchberg area of the city is already planned for the end of 2017.
