Bordeaux trams to trundle through Hyderabad lanes

Soon, the Moazzam Jahi Market to Charminar stretch could flaunt a new-age tramway , much like the one ferrying passengers in the French city of Bordeaux. Authorities shared that the tramway line might be laid along this 2.9 km tract as part of the ongoing Charminar Pedestrianisation Project.  A cooperative agreement to introduce this New Generation Tramway was signed between Bordeaux Metropole and Telangana in October 2015.

Being prepared as a two-line tramway system, the estimated cost of the project, officials said, is Rs.100 crore. Hyderabad mayor Bonthu Ram Mohan stressed the need to strengthen the city's public transport system and make it smarter.
