metro and trammay algiers

Following the demographic explosion of the town of Algiers, a subway was considered as of the end of the Seventies. Work began in 1983, but was slowed down because of financial difficulties and of the insecurity in the Nineties. The premièrSuite with the demographic explosion of the town of Algiers, a subway was considered as of the end of the Seventies. Work began in 1983, but was slowed down because of financial difficulties and of the insecurity in the Nineties. The first phase of the line 1 “Haï el Badr” - “Tafourah Large post office”, 9 km, 10 stations, currently in construction, could be put in service at the end of 2008 or 2009. The end of the tunnel for the Inhabitants of Algiers thus seems close.



The construction of the subway became for the State a great challenge of infrastructure like the new air terminal of Algiers and the East-West motorway, also 20 years projects. In 2001, a German company and a Frenchwoman, in partnership with Cosider, took again construction. The building site was started again at the summer 2003: a bearing market realization of a single lot of 4,5 km tunnel (garden of Tests until Haï El Badr) was entrusted to Gamma, a grouping algéro-German (Cosider, Dywidag and Infrafer), to realize in 30 months. Currently approximately two thousand people work for the subway. Since work of civil engineering advance good train and finish in 2006 for phase 1. Company Subway of Algiers (EMA), in charge of the realization of the subway, entrusted the realization of the equipment of the line to the grouping made up of the French companies Siemens Transportation Systems and Vinci Construction - Great Projects as of the Spanish company CIF which will provide the travelling material (14 trains of 6 cars), near to that of Madrid and Rome. The contract signed in January 2006 relates to an amount of 380 million euros. Alstom had obtained auparavent a contract of electrification of the ways.
The installation of the rails is scheduled for November 2006 and the first car would arrive to Algiers in December 2007






Finally the total cost of the first phase of line 1 rises to 77 billion dinars, engineering civil and equipment included/understood, is nearly 900 million euros. A first startup is announced for the end of 2008. The exploitation of the subway should be entrusted to a tested company, probably in the form of a mandate of management. Three extensions of line 1 are envisaged by 2010: of “Tafourah” towards “place of the Martyrs”, of “Haï El Badr” in direction of “El Harrach” and “Aïn Naâdja”. When the totality of line 1 of the subway is operational, the subway will accomodate nearly 150.000 travellers per day, will comprise 16 stations, and 14 km will be long. It will be then a great puff of air for the town of Algiers and its inhabitants.


of another lines are considered by 2020


In complement of the subway, the construction of the tram has to begin in 2006 that of the regional networks express train (Algiers Algiers-thenia-airport) has it to begin in November 2005



first line of the trammay of Algiers


the oran cities, constantine, setif and annaba will also have to them trammay in 2009

The metro trains are very similar to new Barcelona and Rome series, made by CAF.

The regional express trains apparently look like CAF DMU's as well.

Spain will provide 14 similar subway trains has that of Barcelona by the Spanish group Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrorriles (CIF). The group of French construction, Vinci, German Siemens, and Spanish company CIF, had, should it be pointed out, signed at the beginning of the year a 2006 contract of 380 million euros for the realization of the first subway line of Algiers. Of a length of 9km, the first phase of this line will include/understand 10 stations connecting Haï El Badr to Tafourah-Large Post office. It will be equipped with 20km of ways, 14 oars, installations with high voltage and systems of indication, 23 escalators, a central center of order. The subway of Algiers would have, according to persons in charge's for the sector, operational being in 2008. In a first stage, the subway should transport at the peak hour 18.000 to 20.000 travellers with 100.000 travellers per day. With the future extensions envisaged on 8,5 kilometers, 250.000 travellers will use the subway daily. The introduction of this building site from now on is registered with the row of the priorities defined in the five-year plan (2004-2009) of economic growth, equipped with a total envelope of 54 billion dollars. It should be stressed that the fields of the transports rail-bound and urban, suburban trains and road network are the gravitational sectors for the Spanish operators. In 2005, and within the framework of the modernization of the rail Algeria, the Spanish government granted to Algeria a credit of an amount of 102,1 million euros to finance the acquisition of 17 diesel trains, within the framework of the FAD. Of a capacity of 340 sitted places each one, these trains can reach the maximum speed of 160km/heure. “Algeria is a priority country for the marketing policy of Spain, since it belongs to the 9 countries being reproduced on the list of the markets in high potential and that it has a specific plan of promotion of the trade and bilateral investments”, underlines one.

The tunnel of the subway of Algiers opened its doors yesterday for an inspection carried out by the Minister for Transport. The press was invited there in order to note, in the presence of the various directors of projects, the progress report of the building site. The convoy started of Haï el Badr, crossed the tunnel in its totality while marking stops in certain stations in order to take stock, to finish with the terminus, namely the station Tafourah- Large-Station. Work, which had begun in 1983, and which had been stopped because of financial difficulties and of the insecurity in the Nineties, goes today “good train”. Engineering the civil part of the first phase of the line 1 “Haï el Badr” - “Tafourah, Large-Station”, entrusted to the grouping Gamma and which counts 9 km, 10 stations, are finally completed. The French company Vinci Construction, in charge of the preparing of the subway of Algiers, realized, in one of the visited stations, two samples of coating, one out of ceramics, the other out of enamelled iron. These two proposals with the choice were presented at Mr. Maghlaoui with who will return the final decision. The representatives of this company insisted on the reliability and the resistance of these materials since, according to the forecasts, 40.000 travellers will press the floor of these galleries in peak hour. The interval of time between each passage of train planned for 2008 is of 3mn 20s. In the long term, it will be tiny room of half. Line 1 will count 14 oars including 2 in reserve. Each oar is of a capacity of 1.200 travellers. Two extensions of this same line are envisaged by 2010: of “Tafourah” towards the “place of the Martyrs”, of “Haï el Badr” in direction of “El Harrach” and “Aïn Naâdja”. Thus, according to Mr. Hadbi, director of the infrastructures, “the installation of the rails is scheduled for January 2007, their setting in tension will be done in December of the same year. The reception of the first car of the 72 waited will take place in March 2008. The first tests will be thus possible as of next June so that the subway of Algiers is operational at at the end of 2008”. This project is only one shutter of the program of urban transport intended to unchoke the capital and which envisages also the realization of a tram, in particular to serve Is of Algiers, the construction of other cable cars as well as the rehabilitation of those already existing and a reorganization of the urban public transport. In addition, we learned that a study was entrusted to the School fine arts to propose the decoration of three stations, namely Tafourah-Large Post office, Shot and the Garden of Tests. At the time of the crossing of the tunnel, we noticed that the work of decoration already started. Certain workmen apparently could not prevent “tagger” the walls of the tunnel which will see, hope for it soon, its end.
