The European Investment Bank (EIB) has announced plans to lend EUR210 million to Société Régionale Wallonne du Transport (SRWT) for the planned Liège tramway system in Belgium. The project is expected to require an investment of EUR420 million overall, and will be developed through a public-private partnership (PPP) under a design-build-finance-maintain (DBFM) model. The private partner for the project is yet to be selected.
The system will comprise a single north-south line, which will span 11.5 km from Seraing to Bressoux via the city centre, covering 21 stops.
