The Angers tramway awarded in London for a Worldwide Project of the year

The Angers tramway received on october 5th in London an award for the "Worldwide project of the year" granted by the Light Rail Awards. This prize is an initiative of an English  magazine "Tramways & Urban Transit", a worldwide publication for the light and urban rail industries. Now in its 74th year, it is unique as a magazine founded on the needs of transport operators, planners, manufacturers and campaigners for better public transport in congested towns and cities
The event took place in a building of the Honourable Artillery Company located in London and Angers tramway was competing with two hundreds projets coming from seven countries. These Light Rail Awards are now in their fifth year. The Uk under-secretary of transport attended the event.

This prize could be helpful for the city to enhance its fame on an international scale (thanks to the new territory brand, Angers Loire Valley) but the news was just indicated in a few lines of Métropole, the magazine of the agglomeration authority and it is not announced the carriages of the Angers tramway will show the UK award.
