InTramCities  with Gordon Stewart


Toulouse, France : 3rd May 2014                                                                                                                          Map        


An extensive network of "first generation" trams finally disappeared in 1957, but the rapid growth of Toulouse, powered by the aerospace industry meant that an all-bus solution increasingly became seen as inadequate. A strong city mayor pushed for and achieved a two-line "VAL" mini-metro system, the concept being accepted in 1983 and the first line opening in 1993. Line 2 followed in 2007. There is an interchange between the two lines at Jean-Jaures station, close to the city's historic core. The focus shifted to tramways, partially because of the high cost of metro construction and by December 2010, line T1 was opened, linking the developing north-western communities of Beauzelle and Blagnac (see photo above at Place Georges Brassens) to the city proper and terminating at Arenes metro station for transfers onward to the city centre. Tram line T1 was extended towards the southern side of the city centre, reaching Palais de Justice and the new track was opened for service in December 2013. Most passengers still change at Arenes because the trams do not penetrate into the historic city centre, but passenger numbers on the new extension have been encouraging. A short branch from line T1 is currently under construction to serve Toulouse-Blagnac airport and a recent change of political power in the city threatens future development of the tram network.
