Artelia is acting as lead firm in the consortium appointed to design and supervise the construction of Montpellier’s fifth tram line.
Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole (3M – the Montpellier urban area authority) and Transports de l’agglomération de Montpellier (TaM – the Montpellier urban area public transport authority) have commissioned the Artelia / Systra / Atelier Garcia Diaz consortium to design and supervise construction of the fifth tram line serving the Montpellier urban area.
The objective of the project is to create a link between the north (Clapiers) and the west (Laverune) of the urban area via the city centre. It includes 13 km of tracks, 25 stations, a new depot, ten engineering structures and five park and ride facilities. The line is scheduled to be commissioned in 2025 and expected to be used by 60,000 passengers per day.
A spokesperson for Artelia said: “We are very proud to be the lead firm for this outstanding project. The success of this high-quality proposal is testament to project team’s unstinting commitment and hard work over nearly a year.”
