September 14, 2021: tomorrow, the all-new streetcar line #3, connecting Taganrog's historic downtown area with Krasny Kotelshchik plant
begins service. During the promotional service period of September 15-19 all rides will be free. New low-floor and Wi-Fi enabled streetcars with air conditioning systems are expected to take the route with the interval of 7 to 15 minutes.
The offer is valid only for the new tram route #3 on the occasion of the 323rd anniversary of the city's foundation. 10,6 kilometres of rails and reinforced concrete blocks have already been laid during the 4 first months of the modernization. The blocks were mounted respecting the latest standards, so that the movement of trams would be almost noiseless. Drainage system is also provided; therefore, the constructions are safe from flooding. Besides, Taganrog received 20 new tram stops.
Chairwoman of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko rated highly the first results of Taganrog's Urban Revitalisation Program during her visit
to the city. The Taganrog Streetcar System's modernization
is to be completed by September 2022.
