Angers (France) : 21st August, 2019
Angers opened its second genertion tramway in 2011 and Ligne A has 25 stations along its 12 km route length. Construction is currently under way for lines B and C which are not due to open until 2022. Line A is currently curtailed at Moliere with the northern half to Avrille-Ardenne closed temporarily whilst junctions are installed for the new lines. This photo series covers the city centre and southern section of the line to Roseraie.

                               
Above : Angers city centre at the Place du Ralliement tram stop. The tram awaits departure to run along Rue d'Alsace to Boulevard du Marechal Foch. It has just climbed the steep incline of Rue de la Roe from the tramstop at Place Moliere on the banks of the River Maine. This short stretch of tramway receives its power through the APS system which supplies electricity through a contact shoe from a centre "rail" and thus dispenses with the need for overhead wires. The conductor is isolated into short strips which are only activated when the tram is directly above. This French system was pioneered in Bordeaux and adopted for two sections of the Angers tramway deemed to be environmentally sensitive.
