Metro. Under construction
Entreprise Métro d’Alger (EMA) has awarded the Spanish firm Sener, in an international public bidding, the contract for conducting studies of Metro of Oran. This project extends from the preliminary study to choose the most convenient route for the city until the conditions for the operation of the line with the project layout in different areas. The initial estimate, which will have to be confirmed during the preliminary study, considered two lines of 17 kilometres and a total of 20 stations. The resulting investment would therefore be €1,200 M. The development of the line is carried out in four phases and is estimated that it could be finalized in 2040.
