Milano orders more Stadler Tramlink
Posted on 28th June 2023 at 11:25
With the first of 60 25m low-floor trams from the 2020 framework agreement with Stadler for 80 Tramlink trams about to enter service, ATM, operator of the Milano tramway system, has announced a second framework agreement with a definite order for 14 five-section 35m trams, and options for 11 more 35m as well as 25 25m trams. If all the options are taken up ATM will be operating 130 Tramlink cars, and remaining high-floor Peter Witt trams from 1928-30 will finally disappear from the streets of the Italian city, while the Desio and Limbate interurban lines will be re-opened.
The longer trams will be double-ended with four doors on each side and feature innovative bogies to accommodate the systems sharp curves. A driver assistance system is provided. The latest order is financed by Italy’s PNRR (Piano Nazionale Ripresa e Resilienza) fund, which was set up to promote resilience and recovery after the Corona pandemic.
