Testing of the Ayacucho tramway in Medellin, Colombia, has begun.

Project partners Alstom and NTL have run the first test tram along the 4.3-kilometre line, which connects the city’s metro and metrocable lines.

Operated by Metro de Medellin, the line is scheduled for a partial opening in October 2015.

NTL, which is 51 per cent owned by Alstom, is supplying 12 Translohr STE5 trams for Medellin which have been designed to operate on the system’s 12 per cent gradients.

Alstom is responsible for the project’s power supply, including intake substation and traction substations.
