Rabat-Salé tramway, a flagship project in Morocco

The first modern tram lines in the region have been up and running since 2011.

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.

Our missions

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.
