We are pleased to welcome the arrival of the tram in Kirchberg, a major Luxembourg transport innovation inaugurated on 10 December.
Taking just 11 minutes, the first section of the tram line links the new Pafendall (Pont Rouge) station to Luxexpo, right opposite BGL BNP Paribas' headquarters. By 2021, Luxtram is set to whisk travellers from Kirchberg to Findel airport in just seven minutes!
BGL BNP Paribas first opened its head office on the Kirchberg plateau in 1995. At the time, the Bank was something of a pioneer as the area was rather underpopulated, and its principal neighbours were the European institutions.
Over the last 20 years, the Bank has witnessed an extraordinary boom in urban development. The arrival of the tram is an important step forward in this adventure as it contributes both to the protection of the environment and to the growth of residential activity in Kirchberg.
