Rabat – A proposal to extend the Rabat tramway line to serve the neighborhoods of Hay Riyad and Hay El Fath is being finalized.
“We expect the signing of a financing agreement with the Ministries of Finance and Interior in the first quarter of 2015 if all conditions are met,” Lemghari-Hakim Essakel, director of the Agency for the Development of the Bourgereg Valley and the Society of Rabat Tramway was quoted by Le360 as saying.
The Rabat Tramway company wants to extend its service to a number of new places in the Moroccan capital, including New Sale, Moulay Smail and Oulad Moussa.
The new plans to extend the Tramway network to cover 20 kilometers will cost between MAD 170 and 210 million.
In addition to Rabat and Casablanca, studies are underway for the implementation of Tramway lines in the northern city of Tangiers.
The project is likely to connect neighborhoods with a high concentration of population and industrial areas in the city and its surroundings.
The studies are being carried out by the French company Wahlstrom, which is in charge of identifying the problems of transportation and traffic in the different parts of Tangier, as well as potential areas to connect with the tramway network.
