Tramway in Tours
Tours residents celebrated the end of work on their new tramway, riding it for the first time on inauguration day, 31 August 2013.
Eiffage Travaux Publics helped create the network, together with Eiffage Construction and Eiffage Énergie. Its teams built one-quarter of the line’s route and seven stations right in the centre of the city.

In particular, the company laid 50,000 sq. m of paving and flagstones, 2,000 sq. m of surface concrete, 8,000 tonnes of coated aggregate and 4,000 sq. m of beige coated aggregate.
Eiffage Travaux Publics also fitted out a gyrating and redoes the whole pavement of the National street, main trading artery of the city, to allow it to welcome this new clean mode of transport.
