Quebec City’s tramway project picked up serious momentum last week with the call for tenders to build and maintain the system, and the announcement of possible routes and stations for the tram lines.

Following official approval by the Quebec government on April 7, the city can now invite bids on the project contained in a 3,000-page proposal prepared by the tramway project office.
