Objectives:

Improve access to districts with high population densities

Enable access to the congested shopping mall

Enable access to frequently used facilities (Government center, University Hospital center, University faculties)

“TEOR” Transport Est-Ouest de Rouen(Rouen East-West Transit)


1994 (December): North-South light rail (with downtown subway) commissioned

1996 (December): Request for Proposals based on performance forecast for east-west light rail line

1997 (December): RFP declared unsuccessful due to high cost of rail option

1997 (December): New RFP for BRT-based system

Background of the East-West transport scheme


1999 (July): Declaration of Public Utility (i.e. Project approved for National-level funding)

2001 (February): Lines T2 and T3 West enter service

2002 (April): Line T1 West enters service

2003 (February): Launch of work in Rouen city center and to the East

2007 (January – December): TEOR gradually enters service eastwards

Background to the East-West transport scheme

Project investment costs(€ million)

Investment cost: € 196 million

  • TEOR investment cost: € 6.5 million/km

  • Light Rail investment cost: € 31.3 million/km


Annual operating costs(€ thousands in 2011)

Operating costs: € 1,624,000


Dealing with Narrow Rights-of-Way

Vehicles travel on a two-lane busway with a concrete barrier separating them from general traffic

Vehicles travel on a single (central or lateral), with a crossable concrete strip separating them from general traffic

Vehicles circulate with general traffic, but with fully equipped stations

Two-way lane

length: 4.5 mi.

One-way lane

length: 3.7 mi.

Unmarked lane

length: 10.2 mi.


Lane Structure

  • TEOR operation with a single center bus-lane:

  • Direction of bus travel alternates by sections

  • Station is always in a reserved lane so stopped bus does not block traffic

TEOR Westbound

TEOR Eastbound

TEOR lane

Lane open to general traffic

Traffic and bus signals


Lane Structure

Dedicated corridor 2 protected lanes (5.9 km)

Dedicated corridor 2 reserved lanes (2.4 km)

Dedicated corridor 1 protected lane (1.7 km)

Dedicated corridor 1 alternating lane (3.5 km)

Unmarked lane (9.5 km)

Unequipped lane (6.8 km)


Lane Structure Video


System operation support

Sound systems for stations and buses

Readouts

Priority traffic lights

Special signage

Ticketing system

Systems


Transceiver tower at highest point

(Canteleu)

Flashing triangle indicates the approaching TEOR has been detected and will have all green lights as soon as unloading/loading is confirmed by the driver

Signal priority

Oversight by the central control system

Station/Stop

(located before the intersection)


Signal and Priority Video


Optical guidance

  • Operation:

  • The camera reads coded marks on the ground indicating the required route

  • A computer analyses the vehicle's position relative to the lane and transmits the required corrections to the steering wheel

Man-machine interface

Camera

Wheel encoder

Torque motor

IT network

Ground marks


Horizontal gap

Vertical gap

Gaps

On average, vertical gaps are 4.25 cm high and horizontal gaps are between 4 and 5 cm wide


Guidance System Video


Station/Stops

Design identical to that of tramway stations
