Rosario [AR] - Extension plans for line Q progress
K. Budach - 09.05.16
Presently, the Rosario public transport company SEMTUR plans to start trolleybus services on the new line Q before the end of the year. As part of these plans, already 12 "Megapolis" trolleys with long range battery packs have been ordered. In the public procurement process, the Russian manufacturer Trolza won the bid over domestic Argentinian bus builder Materfer. The latter had offered the same low-floor model as has been supplied in a series of 15 vehicles to Mendoza.
Line Q will lead from the southwest of the conurbation to the city center and shall terminate at the university library La Siberia. Along the Avenida Francia and as far as the university, the trolleybuses on line Q will use the existing catenary of line K, whereas the rest of the route will be completed in battery mode. The entire length of line Q will measure 12.5 km and the 8-minute headway on weekdays will require an operational allocation of 10 battery trolleys.
