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.
