The first two lines of the Rabat-Salé trams were opened in 2011 to meet the needs of the growing population in this fast-developing region. Egis was responsible for the design and all aspects of engineering, procurement and construction for the project.
The tram runs over almost 20 km and serves a population of 400,000, transporting up to 170,000 passengers per day. Stops are spaced at every 500 metres, providing access to the city's major facilities and amenities.
The two lines cover a combined 22 km with 38 stations and 3 kms of shared section crossing the Bouregreg river between Rabat and Salé.
The Bouregreg development agency (the Agence pour l'Aménagement de la Vallée du Bouregreg - AAVB) and the Société du Tramway de Rabat-Salé (STRS) selected Egis for the engineering, procurement and construction for the infrastructure, facilities, urban development and landscaping, land and on-board equipment, rolling stock, warehouse/maintenance facilities and the coordination of rerouting works. Egis was also responsible for the general coordination of the works and overall project management.
