[DZ] Algeria | road infrastructure

Aconex is providing its service to the main section of the world’s largest construction project – the US$11.2 billion East-West Highway development in Algeria.

Construction of the 399km Eastern section will involve the flow of a large volume of information between around 2,000 project members, including the client, subcontractors, project managers, engineers, consultants, suppliers, and the developer’s member-companies’ Head Offices, situated across Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East and North America.

Mr. Minoru Ishida, Project Director at Kajima Corporation, said “Aconex will enable the five joint venture parties to manage and share information in real time, helping us to deliver this significant project to the Government of Algeria on time and within budget.”

“Through managing information electronically using Aconex, the cost of controlling and distributing documentation will be reduced, and productivity will be increased by team members having instant access to information.

“Aconex provides expert advice in best practice information management and on-the-ground training and support to all project participants, regardless of where they are in the world.”

Developers
COJAAL JV, comprising: Kajima, Taisei, Hazama and Nishimatsu and Itochu.

Are you kidding? In The Netherlands, they want to build a freeway for about 45 years, and the costs are now about 1 billion dollars... for 7000 meters!

Well, we are talking here about a 7000 meters 2x2 motorway in grasslands, and for some section, between to suburban cities. But the dike were the motorway is suppose to go on, is even build in the sixties, so they only have to asphalt it (there are even no exits on this stretch!).

Will this be a highway, or a motorway? I noted there are some motorways around Algiers and Oran.

Are they going to do it 3 lanes in each direction all along the motorway?!? In the 1200km?!??

Unless it's going allways through urbanised areas (which isn't possible, with so many km's) I don't understand why the 3 lanes.... seems like a waste of money for a rural motorway(unless in the urban streatches, as i've refered.

3 lanes

yeah they are doing 3 lanes each direction
and is not waste off money because this highway will pass westen side off algeria to eastern side and will cross most major city and port etc reduce the time by half
and they will build motel , gas station , rest area
so this will make the environemnt different
it will creat jobs etcc.......

Algeria: East-West motorway project launched

Posted: 15-03-2007 , 09:48 GMT


Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika on Wednesday officially launched in Hammadi, in the province of Boumerdes, the East-West motorway works, a "huge project" budgeted at AD800 billion (some US$13 billion) and which length is estimated at more than 1,200km. The motorway will be completed within 40 months.



According to APS, Bouteflika laid the first stone of this project in an atmosphere of popular feast, created by the inhabitants of Hammadi, a southern Algiers small area and folk dance troupes, accompanied by shots of "baroud" by traditionally-dressed horsemen.

The highway will ensure the connection between the Tunisian border to the east and the Moroccan border to the west, and will link the cities of Annaba, Constantine, Setif, Algiers, Oran and Tlemcen. It will cross 24 of Algeria’s 48 wilayas (or provinces). This project is part of a huge economic and social recovery program over the period 2005-2009, of which it is one of the major components in terms of required resources and potential economic value. The project is entirely financed by the Algerian Government.



Japanese consortium Cojaal and Chinese Citic/CRCC will carry out the construction of the three sections of the east-west motorway in Algeria. The first 400km-section will be built by Cojaal. The centre and west section will be built by CRCC.
