Suzhou to construct first trolleybus line

The construction of the first modern trolleybus line in Jiangsu province was started on Sept 11, in Suzhou National New & High-Tech Industrial Development Zone (SND)

The 18-km SND Trolleybus Line 1 project, with a total investment of 3.1 billion yuan, is expected to be operational in the first half of 2015. Together with another five trolleybus lines planned, the new transport network with an investment of 18 billion yuan will cover the northern and western area of the industrial development zone with less developed transit facility.

According to estimates, the trolleybus system in SND can meet the requirements for the maximum section of passenger flow at rush hours 20 years after it is adopted, said He Liying, a senior engineer of Shanghai Urban Construction and Design Research Institute who's in charge of the project.

Besides Suzhou, Nanjing's trolleybus system is in the stage of design, and Changzhou city and Taizhou city shows similar intention to develop such systems. Several other Chinese cities also have started the design or construction of their own trolleybus networks.

Trolleybuses run faster and carry more people than regular buses, need shorter construction period than light rail trains and only cost one fourth of construction money for the latter.

Currently a wave of reviving the trolleybus transport system is sweeping across the world with some 400 cities in more than 50 countries operating modern trolleybus systems.
