New Tram Line 2 Delayed for Funding


The Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis in France has been forced to delay the completion of the expensive tramway Line 2.
Residents and tourists will have to wait until 2019 to take a direct tram from the Nice Côte d’Azur Airport to the port, it has been revealed. The multi-million euro project will now be broken up into chewable pieces to limit the damage to the Metropolis’ pocket, as State funding is expected to drop over the coming years.
Passengers will be forced to change at avenue Jean Médécin in order to reach the port

In 2017, the public will be able to catch a Line 2 tram from Cadam or the airport and travel as far as avenue Jean Médécin. Here, they will have to change onto a Line 1 tram, which will take them to Place Garibaldi. If they want to reach the port, they will have to complete their journey on foot. The final underground stations of Line 2 (Durandy, Garibaldi and the port) will not be accessible until 2019.
