WCN Editorial Team 16 May 2022 AFRICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Colas Rail has secured a contract to construct low-voltage systems for T3 and T4 lines of the Casablanca tramway in Morocco.

To last 30 months, this project will cost €15m.

The project involves studies and the installation of the low-voltage systems on track, including video surveillance, sound system, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), the multiservice network, time synchronisation, and telecoms.

This latest contract comes after those already secured last year for electrification (catenaries and electrical substations) and the laying of railway tracks for the central section of T3 and T4 of the Casablanca tramway.

These two lines will reinforce the public transport offer of the most populated city in Morocco, which is home to four million people.

Line T3 will feature 20 stations over a length of 14km of double track platform, while Line T4 will have 19 stations with a double-track platform.

Colas Rail chairman Hervé Le Joliff said: “This new contract shows that there is a real bond, built on trust, between the Moroccan local authorities and Colas Rail.

“As in previous projects for the Casablanca tramway, our teams are fully mobilised to deliver an integrated, reliable and safe system to our historical partner.”

Formed in Morocco in 2008, Colas Rail has participated in all the construction projects for tramway systems carried out in the country.

These include lines 1 and 2 of the Rabat-Salé tramway and its expansions, as well as lines T1 and T2 of the Casablanca tramway.
