Maghreb high line speed project progresses with a meeting in Tunis


The technical study for the achievement of the Maghreb high speed railway line was the focus of a working session held in Tunis on 29 February 2012. The meeting was attended by Tunisia’s Transport Minister Abdelkarim Harouni along with representatives of the European Commission, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Transport Ministers Group of the Western Mediterranean (GTMO 5+5).

The 800-kilometre high speed line on the Tunisian territory is to link the Algerian borders in the north and the Libyan borders in the south.

Taking the floor, Abdelkarim Harouni pointed out that the transparency conditions prevailing in Tunisia constitute a guarantee for the achievement of joint projects. He also spoke of the difficulties confronting the transport sector in Tunisia as a result of bad management before the Revolution. The minister underlined the need to urgently proceed with in-depth reforms in the sector, including in particular restructuring companies, improving their profitability and upgrading infrastructure. The European delegation voiced readiness to offer the necessary assistance in logistic means and in know-how for the achievement of the high speed line.

Tunisian railway colleagues complete IRaTCA training programme




IRaTCA completed a programme on the Operation and Maintenance of EMU for Tunisia, held from 29 September to 14 October.

Tunisia is the third country in Africa following Egypt and Algeria to follow a single IRaTCA training programme as one country. This course was held following a request to rearrange the course schedule out of consideration for Tunisia’s political situation.

The curriculum was designed for trainees to learn about KORAIL’s advanced railway system through specialist lectures and technical visits requiring them to play an active role in the Team Project, in which they seek as many solutions as possible to a number of issues.

The trainees showed a very positive and participatory attitude throughout the whole training period. They visited Goyang KTX depot, IT centre, KARST (Korea Airport Railway Seoul Station Terminal), Guro CTC (Centralised Traffic Control) centre and Seoul Station for a study visit, which represent KORAIL’s up-to–date railway infrastructure. Their enthusiastic desire to learn about KORAIL’s advanced railway system was confirmed by their endless questions in and out of the classroom.

In the congratulatory speech given by Mr Paeng Jung-Goang, KORAIL’s new Vice-President, it was stated that “IRaTCA opened its first railway training course for Tunisia, which is very meaningful. We have been able to take the first step to achieve co-prosperity by maintaining this kind of training programme to secure a tight friendship and to broaden our understanding of each other”.

In the reply speech, Mr Rafik Khelifi said “We thank KORAIL for supporting and implementing a very interesting training course for us. We were able to recognise the success of the Korean railroad. Now we can go back to our country encouraged by future cooperation with KORAIL”.

IRaTCA will continue its efforts to be the best railway training institute in Asia, expanding the training programme in the African continent.

Not much I'm afraid... On the west side the rail border between Morocco and Algeria is still
closed, and on the east side, Lybia is now a lawless zone, very unfavourable conditions for rail projects...

TGVM : Train à Grande Vitesse Maghrébin

Afin de répondre aux besoins croissants en matière de déplacements, il a été jugé opportun de réaliser une étude de faisabilité technique et économique permettant d'optimiser ce projet.
A ce titre, et compte tenu des possibilités offertes actuellement par la technique ferroviaire via la grande vitesse, les temps de parcours qui pourraient être envisagés avec des
vitesses de pointe de 250 Km/h
en tenant compte des arrêts intermédiaires (soit une vitesse commerciale moyenne de l'ordre de 200 km/h)

se présentent comme suit :

Axe
Distance
Temps de parcours

Casablanca- Alger
1200 Km
6h

Alger - Tunis
800 Km
4h

Tunis - Tripoli
1000 Km
5h

Discussions start around the rehabilitation and modernisation of the Trans-Maghrebine railway line - Morocco


The The General Secretariat of the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) has requested expressions of interest for a feasibility study into the rehabilitation and modernization of the Trans- Maghreb iron railway line.

The AMU has received funding from the African Development Bank (AfDB) to undertake NEPAD infrastructure projects, and the organization intends to use a portion of the grant to fund a feasibility study into the rehabilitation and modernization of the Trans-Maghrébine railway line. The study area is located along the Casablanca Corridor, covering Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.

The AMU has requested consulting firms to submit proposals for a feasibility study that will examine the technical, economic, financial and socio-environmental impact of rehabilitation and upgrading of about 362 km of railways linking Morocco to Algeria; 503km railway linking Algeria to Tunisia and 253 km of railways between Algeria and Tunisia. In addition, the study will need to explore the construction possibilities of new railways that will support a speed base of 220 km/h between Algeria and Tunisia.

The closing date for submission of expressions of interest was 11 July, with the total duration of the study envisioned to be one year – from December 2016 to December 2017. The expression of interest request follows the general procurement notice for this project which appeared in the "United Nations Development Business Online " June 17, 2016 and bodes well for investment opportunities on the line in the future.
