Tram under construction

Mostaganem, a city of 700,000 in­habitants, located northwest of the country, is part of the modernization program of urban transport launched by the state. Isolux Corsán and Alstom were awarded its construction for an amount of 250 million euros.

The project achieved now is the con­struction of a railway infrastructure of 14 kilometres, which will have 24 sta­tions and is expected to provide service to about 150,000 passengers.

The work includes the construction of six exchange points between the tram and the bus, ten car parks, and the de­velopment of different areas.

It also includes the construction of a maintenance centre that will house garages, workshops and an adminis­tration building, in addition to under­passes and a viaduct 177 meters long in order to reconcile the tram traffic in the city.
