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..
