CASABLANCA public transport operator Casa Transport has awarded Colas Rail a €15m to contract to install low-voltage systems on light rail lines T3 and T4.

Work will include the installation of CCTV, public address systems, Scada and telecommunications, and is due to take 30 months to complete.

Increasing public transport provision in Morocco’s largest city, home to four million inhabitants, line T3 will serve 20 stations over its 14km double-track route. Line T4 will be 12.5km long and serve 19 stations.

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

In 2021 Colas Rail was awarded a €24m contract to undertake to design, construction and commissioning of 25km of overhead electrification, as well as the provision of power supply systems and the installation of 21 substations.

The company was also awarded a €10m contract to lay 14km of track and install 11 switches and crossings on section three for both lines T3 and T4 lines in the city centre.
