    Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)

    Up to EUR 150 million
    Around EUR 363 million

    Construction of the first tramway line in the city of Tours (14.8 km, 29 stations), passing through Tours city centre to connect its northern districts to the urban centre of Joué-les-Tours to the south.

    To boost the competitiveness and attractiveness of public transport in the Tours region.

    Environmental aspects

    The project will help to enhance the relative attraction of rail versus road transport. This will result in a reduction in the number of journeys undertaken by private car and limit the harmful impacts of this mode of transport (accidents, local atmospheric pollution and noise).

    Procurement procedures will be in accordance with national legislation and EU directives.


    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
