Tram extensions. Under construction.

A consortium of Alstom, Isolux Corsan, the Algerian constructor Cosider with Idom’s control resulted in June 2014 with the award of the expansion pro­ject of the first tram line in Constan­tine (in operation since July 4, 2013), a railway infrastructure of more than 13 kilometers long with 14 stations and which will also involve the construction of a parking lot for cars. The consortium formed by the Spanish company Isolux Corsán (33.3%), the French company Alstom (37.7%) and the Algerian con­structor Cosider (29%) will execute this project, which has had a budget of over 313 million euros.

The work of this extension, awarded by Enterprise Metro d’Alger (EMA), con­templated the realization of two sec­tions of rail lines that will give service to the areas of Ali Mendjeli and Uni­versity.

The first, Zouaghi- Mohamed Boudiaf Airport, will be 2.8 km long and will have 4 stations. The second section, Zouaghi –Ali Medjeli, 10.3 kilometers long and 10 stations, will also have a parking for vehicles. The initial sec­tion of 8.1 km, from Benabdelmalek to Zouaghi, is operated and maintained by Setram, a consortium of RATP Dev, France, EMA and ETUSA under a 10 year contract.
