Testing to begin on electrified Grenoble Line E tramway

Testing is set to begin on Grenoble’s new Line E tramway after a southern portion of the line was electrified earlier this month.

The €290 million line, which is due to go into operation in June next year, will become Grenoble’s fifth tram line, connecting the north and west of the city between Fontanil and Cornillon.

Alstom has supplied and installed seven substations along the route and will continue installing electrification equipment until September.
