La Chine va relier par train Dakar et Bamako

http://www.rfi.fr/afrique/20151224-c...n-dakar-bamako

Les Sénégalais pourront-ils, dans quelques années, aller se restaurer au célèbre hôtel Buffet de la Gare de Bamako ? Après des années au ralenti, l’Etat vient de signer un partenariat avec le géant chinois China Railway Construction Corporation International (CRCCI) pour reconstruire entièrement la ligne Dakar-Bamako. Quatre ans de travaux sont prévus, 2000 emplois pourraient être créer au Sénégal.

Six millions de tonnes de marchandises, deux millions de passagers par an. Voilà les objectifs fixés par le gouvernement du Sénégal à l’entreprise chinoise CRCCI, qui a remporté ce gigantesque marché, sans appel à la concurrence.

Mansour Elimane Kane, ministre de Transports, rappelle la nécessité de reconstruire totalement cet axe vital : « La ligne qu’on veut réhabiliter, Dakar-Bamako, a été inaugurée en 1923. Le trafic est réduit à un train tous les trois jours. Aujourd’hui, ce transport se fait par la route. C’est 254 camions par jour sur les routes du Sénégal. »

Le contrat engage les travaux de Dakar à Kidira, juste avant la frontière avec le Mali. L’investissement global est de 754 milliards de francs CFA. 15 % de ce montant sera exécuté par des entreprises du Sénégal, le reste par la Chine. Wai Wanzheng, le directeur général adjoint de la RCCI, se félicite de la signature avec le Sénégal, mais rappelle que le lancement du chantier dépend aussi de la signature avec la partie malienne : « Oui, c’est vrai que c’est lié aussi à la conclusion du contrat avec la partie malienne. Le contrat sera signé très prochainement, peut-être que ce sera la semaine prochaine. On attend juste la confirmation de la partie malienne. »

L’entreprise chinoise souhaite attaquer les travaux de cette ligne Dakar-Bamako dès le début de l’année 2016.

Tazara railway line to be refurbished for cargo transportation

Quote:
Tanzania and Zambia are making plans to revive the TAZARA railway, which covers thousands of kilometers in Eastern and Southern Africa, and was once was the key export route for Zambia's copper ore. The line was originally built with Chinese help in the 1970s, but over the years it has fallen into disrepair.

A faster and more powerful locomotive on the rejuvenated line is going to bring enormous benefits to the landlocked countries in the long run.

TGVM : Train à Grande Vitesse Maghrébin



Quote:
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.
