DESCRIPTION
The original Brest tram network opened in 1898; tram service was closed in 1970.
At the beginning of years 2000 Brest planned a modern tram system in order to solve its traffic congestion problems. A new tram line (Line A) opened on June 2012; it is mostly aligned along the east-west axis, serving many crucial urban polarities: technopole, road of Conquet, Thales, Kergaradec parking area, the city centre (Recouvrance and place de Strasbourg), the Froutven Mall. Besides the main works concerning the tram infrastructures, the whole project also involved relevant trasportistic actions (e.g. creation of new modal interchanges and parking facilities at Chateau d'Eau, Conquet, Prat Lèdan, Europe, Kergaradec and Froutven stops) and urbanistic actions (new plans for place de la Liberté, place de Strasbourg, plateau des Capucins et de Recouvrance, Saint-Martin district, etc.).
