I'm very happy to know that Algiers will open second African subway. Cairo has the first and larger system. I've some questions-

1) What are the target year of opening line 2 and line 3?

2) Will line 1 be fully underground? If no, which portions will be at surface or elevated?

3) When the digging for underground section started, was the almost 40 years buried tracks of (now closed) tramway exposed? I mean, any remaining of that tram system is present in today's Algiers?

4) I knew from various internet sources including www.urbanrail.net, www.subways.net and wikipedia that Algiers is thinking now to return its tramway. I've also a map of that planned system. But has the construction started? If no, when it will start?

Has the commercial service of Algiers metro started for public?

By the way, is Algiers now renamed to Jazair?

The Algiers metro – 26 years on and it’s almost ready



This time, it's not a joke. Twenty-six years after the idea was drafted, the Algerian capital could, perhaps, have its very own metro by 2010. Our Observer tells us that it's almost ready - he's even got the photos to prove it.

Earlier this month, Transport Minister Amar Tou made the exciting announcement that the public opening of the Algiers metro should take place early 2010. About time - the project was officially launched in... 1983. Since then, between economic crisis, political instability and public insecurity, the project has been repeatedly pushed to the bottom of the pile. It's out-run five presidents and squandered 140 billion dinars (around 200 million euros). The subject has become something of a joke for Algiers' residents.

Stretching over nine kilometres, the metro's first line will connect ten locations from the centre to the east of the city. The first train will run at 5am, and the last at 11pm. A special police force has been set up to take charge of the stations and their surrounding areas. The Parisian metro security, RATP, has been called upon to supervise arrangements for the first five years.

Hai el Badr is the terminus station, it's the only station above ground, an extention of the sbuway over the el harrach river will be above ground, but in the total line it is less than 1km... the rest is underground.
the extention of the line 1 started on the two direction (from Hai El Badr to Ain Nadja and El Harrach... and from La Grande Poste to Place Emir Abdelkader)
