The Arabic name of Algiers is al-Jazā’ir, or Dzayer in Algerian dialect. The name in French is Alger.

I'm pretty sure that I answered this question before.

Algiers subway system honoured on national holiday



On July 5, 2009, on the occasion of the national holiday in Algeria, a train travelled the entire length of the Algiers subway line from Tafourah Grande station in the northern part of the city to Haï El Badr in the south. Travelling on board the train were Algeria’s Minister of Transportation, Amar Tou, the Secretary General of the Government, and the President of the FLN (Front de Libération nationale) as well as about 30 journalists and 100 invited guests.

This initial run from one end of the Algiers subway system to the other is a highly symbolic event at a point in the project when all civil engineering and architectural installation tasks have been completed and the implementation of electromechanical systems is well under way.

The ten stations of Line 1, developed by VINCI Construction Grands Projets in partnership with Siemens Transportation Systems and CAF, will help relieve road traffic. Travelling at a speed of 70 km per hour, the subway system will operate from 5 AM to 11 PM and carry 41,000 passengers per hour, or 150 million per year.

See the Algiers subway system website : www.metroalger-dz.com

In the foreground from left to right : Amar Tou, minister of Transportation, Abdelaziz Belkhadem, minister of State, advisor to the President, Abdelouahab Maza, director of Subway system, Entreprise métro d'Alger

I love it! I can also barely believe how Algeria is managing to realise so many megaprojects at once; Metro, Tramway and Highway. It goes to show the rest of Africa and the world what is possible!!
I hope Cairo and Algiers can be linked by highways and high speed rail in the next decade or two, so that we can visit each other with ease!
