BORDEAUX Metropole has ordered an additional five Citadis trams from Alstom for €14m, on top of the 25 vehicles currently being manufactured at Alstom's site in La Rochelle.
HS1 Ltd, the owner and infrastructure manager of the high-speed link between London St Pancras and the Channel Tunnel, says it is in discussions with Eurotunnel, SNCF Network and Lisea about introducing direct London - Bordeaux high-speed services.
THE city of Bordeaux has exercised an option with Alstom for 10 additional Citadis low-floor LRVs, which will take its fleet of these vehicles to 125 by the end of the decade.
THE French city of Bordeaux opened a branch line extension to Line C of its light rail network on December 17.
FOLLOWING a lengthy legal dispute, plans to extend Bordeaux's tram network to the northwest received a significant boost on July 21, when the city's administrative appeal court ruled that the €270m project can go ahead.
