Delivery schedule

In the exclusive interview given for Media9 , Vasile Diaconescu (general manager of Astra Vagoane Calatori Arad SA) mentions that more than six trams would be gathered at the depot on Muncii Boulevard, as initially announced, and all 24 could reach the banks of the Someș Mic by the summer of next year.

Astra Arad was declared the winner of the tender organized by the Cluj-Napoca City Hall regarding the delivery of 24 new trams. The total value of the contract amounts to about 40 million euros. The price of a single tram is about 1.95 million euros, 250 thousand more than one for Oradea. Most of the money needed for this acquisition comes from European non-reimbursable funds. The people of Arad have also delivered trolleybuses to Cluj, in the past.
