By popular demand, another posting on ‘green’ or grassed light rail rights-of-ways.
Grassed light rail lines bring a ‘cooling’ green park-like atmosphere to city tram lines.
Lawned rights-of-ways are also used on heavier (fast) light-rail lines on suburban routes.
Even in dense city centres, a lawned tram line is ascetically appealing.
The appealing nature of lawned R-O-W, certainly ‘fits in’ everywhere and certainly far more pleasant than miles of ugly concrete viaducts and a lot cheaper than a subway.
No contest, which picture shows the nicer rights-of-way?
Lawned light rail lines, LRT for the 21st century!
