On behalf of Paris regional transport authority STIF, SNCF has ordered a further 15 Citadis Dualis tram-train vehicles from Alstom. The order announced on January 5 is worth €75m and forms the second option on a framework contract signed in 2007.
The vehicles are to be delivered from October 2017, with entry into revenue service planned for 2019 on the extension of route T4 from Gargan to Montfermeil.
The tram-trains are to be manufactured at Alstom’s Valenciennes site, where the supplier is currently building 15 Citadis Dualis vehicles for STIF. They will feature traction motors supplied by the Alstom plant at Ornans, bogies from Le Creusot, other traction equipment from Tarbes and passenger information systems from Villeurbanne.
