DESCRIPTION
Turin manteins its original tram network which opened in 1871 (first Italian horse tram) and it was electrified in 1898.
During years '80s new LRT/rapid tram lines had to be added, but just one (Line 3) was actually completed in 1987, connecting Vallette to Largo Tortona; two years later (1989) it was extended up to Hermada terminus (crossing river Po').
A new tram line was added in 1990 (just before 1990 FIFA World Cup); Line 9 connects Torino Esposizioni to Stampalia, serving the law court offices and some Universtity faculties. A specific branch (called "Line 9/") occasionally serves Juventus Stadium.
The current tram main route is Line 4, which runs north-south along one of the most important urban road axis (Corso Giulio Cesare-Corso Unione Sovietica), passing through the city centre. In 2001 the southern part of this line has been extended from piazzale Caio Mario to Strada del Drosso (Mirafiori sud); other northern extensions were completed in 2003 (from Piazza Derna to Piazzale Autostrade/strada delle Cascinette) and 2006 (from Cascinette to Falchera/via delle Querce). This last extension partly runs in tunnel underneath Milan-Turin railway, with an important underground stop at Stura railway station (close to an interchange parking facility).
An heritage tram line (Line 7) was opened in 2011, along the circular route Piazza Castello-Duomo-Piazza Castello.
