Riding in Shanghai – Zhangjiang Tram

Zhangjiang Town is a town located in the Pudong District of Shanghai. There are unknown trams in Zhangjiang Town. Construction started in 2007 and started operation in 2009. The whole system adopts Translohr of France Raul Company.

Since Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park has not been popular since its development, the operating capacity of Zhangjiang Tram is also extremely poor. The current annual loss is more than 20 million yuan, but it is still operating. In addition to the lack of passenger flow, the maintenance cost of Zhangjiang Tram it is extremely high. Most parts and components need to be imported. Because of the inability to repay the debt, the foreign party has stopped the supply of some spare parts.

According to the plan, the Zhangjiang tram will be extended to Tangzhen, but the current state of operation makes the plan nowhere in sight.
