Tram under construction

Sener has carried out engineering ser­vices during the bidding phase of the tram.

A joint venture between Alstom and the Turkish construction company Yapi Merkezi was awarded a € 380M con­tract to build the first phase, scheduled to be completed in 2017. An Alstom Citadis fleet will run at intervals of 4 min, and is expected to transport about 5,000 passengers/h.

The first line consists of two sections. The first, with a length of 15.2 km and a total of 30 stations, will connect the town of El Bez (West) with major de­velopments and two universities, while the second (7.2 km) will join the centre of the province and the intermodal bus station projected in Ain, south of the city of Setif..
