We have designed and are building an integrated Light Rail-based Urban Transit System in Mauritius. The 26-km route will connect the cities of Port Louis, the capital, and Curepipe and feature 19 stations, 2 state-of-the-art elevated stations, 3 major bus interchanges, viaducts & bridges. World majors in LRT (Light Rail Transit) will supply the rolling stock and partner to construct the depots and source the maintenance equipment. We are constructing track works (with ballastless tracks including plinth, embedded, grass tracks and conventional ballasted track), DC electric traction power supply systems, ticketing & passenger information systems and integration with road traffic through advanced signaling systems.
The first phase of 12 km from Port Louis to Rose Hill was inaugurated in October 2019 by the Prime Ministers of India and Mauritius. In June 2021, another 2.4 km stretch was inaugurated by the Prime Minister of Mauritius stretching the line up to Quatre-Bornes town. The next completion phase of 3.6 km is expected to be operational in April 2022.
