The Zhuhai tram network is in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. The first section of Line 1 started trial operation on November 7, 2014 with the full line scheduled initially to open by August 2015[2] and finally opened on 13 June 2017 and runs from Haitian Gardens to Shangchong. A three-line network is planned.

Line 1 uses AnsaldoBreda's Sirio trams,[3] and is also the first Chinese tram system that uses Ansaldo's catenary-free TramWave electrification system.[1] When complete, it will connect central Zhuhai to Zhuhai Railway Station and the Gongbei Port of Entry to Macau.[4]
