AUSTRALIA: The first of 60 Citadis X05 trams that Alstom is supplying to operate on the CBD & South East Light Rail line in Sydney has been rolled out, and is due to arrive in Sydney later this year.

A consortium including Alstom signed a A$2ยท1bn PPP contract to build, operate and maintain the light rail line in late 2014, with financial close taking place early the following year. The ALTRAC Light Rail consortium also includes Transdev Sydney, Acciona Infrastructure Australia and Capella Capital, in addition to three equity investors: John Laing, First State Super and Acciona Concesiones. The line is due to open in 2019.
