Samsun

Samsun awarded in July 2008 a contract to start building a 17 km light rail with 22 stops. Rolling stock will be 16 Sirio tram from Ansaldo Breda. The sets are 32m long, 2,6m wide and have a capacity of 270 passengers. These sets will be similar to the ones already in operation in Kayseri.

19 Mayis Blv is one of the city’s principal streets, but it is blocked off, converting the area along the Black Sea into a mostly pedestrian area. Flower boxes line both sides of the tracks, improving the appearance of both the barriers and tramline. April 2011. Photo Jack May
