The first line would go from the capital at Port Louis to Curepipe, mostly following the trackbed of a former Government railway closed in the 1960s.
The first stage, Port Louis to Rose Hill Central, was opened on 10 January 2020. The second stage, to Curepipe, is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
