Zaragoza tram system serves the city of Zaragoza, the fifth largest city in Spain. The tram service connects the historic and modern areas of the city. Zaragoza is a province in the autonomous region of Aragon in Spain and is the 35th most populous municipality in European Union.
The city’s original tram system started in the late 1800s, reaching its peak in the 1950s before falling into decline and being converted to bus lines. The last Zaragoza tram line disappeared in 1976.
In 2009, construction began to equip the city with a new tram system – a complete transportation network that could accommodate both Zaragoza’s demographic growth and geographic expansion. The new system was 8 mph and included over 25 stations – 15 new stops and 10 where single tracks run on parallel streets.
The customer, the TRAZA consortium, required fastenings that could provide flexibility for the project.
