Traffic is increasing on the island roads at an alarming rate; by 60% from 1989 to
2007 between Sandown & Newport alone. If this trend continues it could be 88% by
2016. Congestion and queues would be an everyday occurrence.
To obtain the most sustainable vehicle choice for the island, Tranzwight compared
different vehicle types with build and operational costs over the same island route
ensuring best value and a viable vehicle choice from the start.
Translohr is our preferred choice for this new Tranzwight tramline.
Translohr reduces traffic more than by using buses
Translohr tramway is much cheaper to build than a conventional tramway
Translohr tramway is much cheaper to operate than a conventional tramway
Translohr tramway will carry the same number of passengers as a conventional tramway,
doing the same job
