is the Christian name given to the new funicular
It was built in a tunnel to link the lower part
of the town, near the University, to the train
station on the upper part.
The choice of the bottom station was criticized
because it is some distance from the town centre.
In fact it is a decision of the town transportation
policy to create a new centre of attraction outside
the actual town centre.
The inauguration ceremony of the Fun'ambule was
on April 27th, 2001.
Unquestionably the main remarkable thing of this
new cable railway is the unique design of the
carriages. Designed by CWA, the carriages are
composed of 4 articulated compartments which always
remain horizontal however the gradient variation
of the slope !
