As of November 15, 2005 ....
Please be patient and watch
where you walk while all of
the construction is going on ....

The whole Place Massena is still
dug up for construction of the new
tramway system in Nice that was
started in February 2005 ....

Completion expected mid 2006

Fondest memory: Seeing the tramway system being installed has made us
want to return to Nice to see it when it is finished.

The focal point will be the pedestrianised Place Massena.
From there it will run directly north and east. Heading up
north, the whole of the shopping district of Jean Medecin
will also be pedestranised. It will continue up past the train
station all the way up to the Nice football stadium. Heading
east, it will will run down the also to be pedestrianised Jean
Jaures, skirting the Old Town, through the piazza of Place
Garibaldi and then onwards towards the extreme east of Nice
that the Mayor hopes to rejuvinate.

The estimated cost:
The tramway will cost 370 million euros, and has over 1,200
contruction workers engaged on the project at any one time.
Completion is expected mid 2006 ......
