A project initiated by the Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis and part of the Marseille en grand plan, the Val’Tram has just reached a new major milestone. Work will in fact begin for commissioning scheduled for 2025. The Val’Tram project consists of creating a tram line between Aubagne and La Bouilladisse, mainly reusing the platform of the old railway line, known as Valdonne. The 14 km route will connect Aubagne station to La Bouilladisse in 25 minutes, passing through Roquevaire, Auriol, Pont de Joux and La Destrousse, and will directly concern some 60,000 residents. The first phase of the project will concern the center of Aubagne, including the construction of a new bridge over the Huveaune. Work in the other municipalities concerned will begin at the beginning of 2024.
