After the Lyon Metropolitan Authority, it is now Sytral which is starting the preparatory and infrastructure work needed for the extension of the T2 tram line to La Confluence:
- creating a new reversing area for T2 trams, south of Hôtel de Région, along Rue Montrochet,
- working on a new layout for the Hôtel de Région - Montrochet stop, which will be the final stop on the T2 and T1 tram lines.
As a result:
> the T1 tram line is currently suspended around the Hôtel de Région-Montrochet stop and two temporary stops have been put in place,
> car and bus traffic is being diverted (Quai Perrache),
For more information on the construction work, please refer to Newsletter n°1 (September 2020) or visit sytral.fr
The T2 tram line is the busiest on the network, with 100,000 users travelling on it every day. As part of the Ouvrons Perrache project, its extension will ease traffic on the T1 line and better serve and connect La Confluence to the rest of the city. Objective: one tram every 2 mn - 2 mn 30 at peak times, starting from the spring 2021!
