Two Romanian cities plan to upgrade their tram fleets
In total, the cities are looking to acquire around thirty trams
The Romanian cities of Galați and Iași will attempt to modernize their tram fleets with funding from the European Union’s Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF).
As reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply, citing CTS, Galați intends to purchase 10 trams with a length of 18 meters, with the delivery of the vehicles expected within 15-22 months.
Iași plans to procure 18 low-floor trams with a length of 22 meters, with the delivery expected within 30 months.
It should be noted that in recent years, both cities have partially modernized the infrastructure of their tram systems. Interestingly, Iași is one of only three cities in Romania where trams operate on tracks with a gauge of 1000 mm.
At the same time, Galați is the only city in the country that has converted its tram system from meter gauge to the standard gauge of 1435 mm.
