Constantine tramway extension ready for residents traveling between the old and new city

29 September 2021 – Alstom, in consortium with Cosider put into commercial service the extension of the Constantine tram line for Entreprise Métro d’Alger. The event took place in the presence of Prime Minister and Finance Minister Aimene Benabderrahmane, Minister of Transport Aissa Bekkai, Mr. Ali Arezki, General Manager of the Entreprise du Métro d’Alger and Mr. Amar Chouaki, Managing Director of Alstom Algeria.

In July 2015, the Entreprise du Métro d’Alger awarded the project to a consortium made up of Alstom as managing contractor and its partner, Cosider Travaux Publics, for the turnkey construction of the extension of the Constantine tram line. The line is 10.3 kilometers long, connecting the station of Zouaghi to the University Constantine 2 Abdelhamid Mehri, located in the new city of Ali Mendjeli, in 26 minutes.

The extension strengthens the urban transport network by allowing access, for residents, from the old to the new city.

As part of this project, Alstom built telecommunications, signalling, traction power, ticketing and rail systems, including the overhead lines.

"As a result of the excellent teamwork and dedication of all members, we have successfully launched the extended Constantine tramway. We are committed to growing our long-term partnership with the Entreprise Metro d’Alger and addressing their mobility needs."
