Dans quelles mesures pouvons-nous assurer la qualité esthétique du gazon des voies de tramway avec une gestion raisonnée de l'arrosage, tout en intégrant les contraintes techniques et enjeux politiques et sociaux ?

Abstract : Established in some thirty cities in France, the tramway is today a popular means of transport that is part of a real urban planning due to its revegetation. The grassing of tramway platforms requires regular watering to meet aesthetic aspect, technical, political, and social constraints, which raises the issue of water consumption. This paper attempts to answer this issue. For this, the line A of the Angers’ tramway system was used as an example. First, an analysis of the line itself to understand its problems and constraints, and an inventory of all the way influencing its water consumption were made. Then, three major levers of action were identified and studied: watering management, political and social aspects. The installation of moisture and temperature sensors made it possible to know the characteristics of the soil in order to carry out watering that seemed more precise and less water consuming. Syringe was also tested, and results were different from those expected. Concerning the political and social aspects, questionnaires were set up showing a gap between political and societal expectations. For all these levers, further studies are needed to obtain more representative results.
