Algeria ready for railway expansion costing €89M

28 May 2015

Algeria is set to expand its light railway to three new systems to be operational by 2020 as a part of its emerging national interest in the transportation sector.

The railway expansion will be set along the Mediterranean coastline which has the largest population and to the northern sides that will see it cover the country’s largest cities, Oran capital Algiers and Constantine.

This will be the largest railway project in Algeria and will cover about 4200 kilometers and is expected to be one of the widest railway lines in the country with a 1,436-mm gauge.

It is expected to raise the level of service delivery and also ease the process of expanding the cities.
The project is the second largest railway project after the first metro development project that has been under construction and is in its final stages.
