Mauritius: Geotechnical studies completed in the wake of the trace of light rail between Curepipe and Port Louis




Geotechnical studies for the building of the route between Curepipe and Port Louis by the body of the Mauritius Land Transport Authority in charge of supervising the construction have now been completed.
 
Lands close to the motorway and mechanical effects related to the passage of light rail in cities Vacoas, Quatre-Bornes, Rose-Hill, Beau-Bassin, ebony, as well as Bagatelle were studied in depth to set a definitive movement axis.
 
The Ministry of land and housing is currently in acquisition of land located on the original route.
 
The latter will be subjected to six international companies deductions (three Indians, one Chinese, one French and one British) for analysis and which must then submit before May 9, their construction as compared to the geotechnical data plans, as recalls the journal Le Matinal.
 
Negotiations will be then started with the three best offers and the designation of the company in charge of the project management will be formalised before late October 2014. The work of the LRT should begin in the wake.
 
The lightweight metro Design Singapore project will cost 22 billion rupees, or 550 million euros.
 
15 million passengers will thus take this means of transportation in Mauritius, with a ticket price which should not exceed the price of a bus ticket.
 
With 19 stations served throughout a modern network of 26 kilometers from Vacoas, Quatre-Bornes and Rose-Hill, the light metro consisting of five blocks of 9 meters each will be 25 to 28 daily trips.
