Algeria seems like it has a surprisingly good railway system.

What are the fastest track speeds going to be?

New locomotives # GT46AC
Class 060DT
20 locomotives of 30 planned have been received, these trains manufactures in the United States of America. By Electro Motive Division (EMD) equipped with latest technologies and power of 4300 hp, are equipped with a new signaling system and a new braking system in addition to an electronic fuel injection engine.
And in the program of modernization and extension of the SNTF network Abederzak Mekroubi, responsible at the level of the SNTF announced that Alstom will deliver 17 Coradia Polyvalent trains to SNTF in January 2018 The contract amount is approximately 200 million euros, .
These trains will link, among others, Algiers to the cities of Oran, Annaba, Constantine and Bechar.
Gian-Luca Erbacci, Senior Vice President of Alstom in the Middle East and Africa, said:
"We are delighted with SNTF's confidence in Alstom. Already adopted by SNCF and the French regions since 2009, Coradia Polyvalent is the ideal choice to meet the transport needs of Algeria. Algerian passengers are guaranteed to travel on a train that benefits from the latest technological innovations that combine comfort, performance and environmental protection,

The Coradia Polyvalent for Algeria is a two-mode train (thermal and electric-25kV) that can run at a speed of 160 km / h. With a total length of 110 meters, the train has six cars and a capacity of 265 passengers.

Coradia Polyvalent meets the needs of SNTF and its passengers. It is adapted to the climatic conditions of the country (sand, outdoor temperatures) and has a very efficient air conditioning system. In addition, this train has a low floor for easy access and movement on board. Accessible to all, and in particular to persons with reduced mobility (PMR), it complies with the latest TSI PMR standard.

Finally, the architecture of the train and its powerful engine make it possible to eliminate the noises and vibrations offering unequaled comfort of travel.

The Alstom site in Reichshoffen, France, will design, manufacture and validate the 17 Coradia trains. Five other sites in France will participate in this project: Saint-Ouen for design, Le Creusot for bogies, Ornans for engines and alternators, Tarbes for traction chains and Villeurbanne for embedded computing and traveler information.

ALGIERS capital HAVE A NEW RAILWAY DESERT

This new rail link will concern Birtouta, Tessala El-Merdja, Sidi Abdallah, Sidi Abdallah University and Zeralda.

The new 23-km-long Birtouta-Zeralda rail link, part of the development of the Algerian region for the modernization and extension of the railway network on the outskirts of Algiers, inaugurated last Sunday by President of the Republic, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, The project of this railway line thus opens up the western region of Algiers, notably the coastal towns of Zeralda which are not yet connected to the railway network. A work that will certainly benefit the thousands of users penalized by the traffic jams that often characterize the regions of Algiers-West; This line that draws 50,000 passengers a day will be a breath of fresh air for the thousands of motorists who use this journey on a daily basis.
The Director General of Anesrif (National Agency for the Study and Monitoring of the Realization of Railway Investments), Azzedine Fridi, will specify in this regard that the work of this project is totally finished and received. "We'll be there. This project was delivered in its entirety on schedule. The years 2016 and 2017 are important for us, as other projects will be received, "revealed the DG who has boosted the agency since his arrival in 2011. The project manager, Rachid Benmahdjoub, Proud to have participated in the realization of this great project. "The challenges never frightened me, on the contrary they encouraged me to multiply efforts. In fact, I am really proud to have contributed fully to the realization of this project, "said the engineer. Moreover, the inhabitants of this part of Algiers-West, met on the spot, have not hidden their satisfaction with the reception of this great project and await impatiently the putting in function of this railway line. "We are looking forward to seeing the train move for the first time in this region, it will solve all transport problems and create a special activity in our region, it will boost all the communes that it crosses," they told us Proudly declared. This section also includes five stations: Birtouta, Tessala El-Merdja, Sidi Abdallah, Halte university Sidi Abdallah and finally Zéralda. It should be noted that this rail link is dual-track electrified and the train will run at 140 km / hour and will be equipped with the high-performance ERTMS level 1 system and a GSM-R type telecommunications system. Continuing its development program, Anesrif has launched, as it will be recalled, two studies extending this line, the first spreads from Zéralda to Aïn Bénian of a total linear of 15 km; The second one whose studies have been entrusted to the South Koreans who have already made a visit along the corridor of this future project which starts from Zeralda to reach the coastal city of Gouraya via Tipasa and Cherchell 91.7 km long. In the future, Algerians will be able to reach the seaside towns of Tipasa and Cherchell by a modern two-way electrified train. The government has invested billions of dollars in this strategic sector for the development of the country. The SNTF has programmed, from the central station of Algiers, links on the new section, Birtouta-Zéralda spaced one hour, the duration of the shuttle between the two municipalities is 50 minutes. It should also be noted that the overall cost of this project, which is entrusted to an Algerian-Turkish consortium composed of Infrarail (Algeria), Yapi Merkezzi (Turkey) and Setirail (project management), is in the region of 35 billion DA. The other major project, Thénia-Tizi Ouzou, will be received in the course of next year.

The reopening of the Annaba - Tunis railway line is planned for next summer.

Quote:
LIGNE FERROVIAIRE ANNABA-TUNIS
La desserte sera pour cet été


Après plusieurs années d'absence, le train sera bientôt remis en service. Après la levée des contraintes techniques, la desserte Annaba-Tunis sera remise en service dès cet été, apprend-on de source interne à la Société nationale des transports ferroviaires (Sntf). Selon cette dernière, toutes les solutions ont été trouvées pour la réhabilitation du réseau, et les essais techniques sont en cours afin de vérifier l'état des rails et procéder à la réouverture de la desserte ferroviaire reliant Annaba à Tunis, a expliqué la même source.

Sur un trajet de 150 à 200 kilomètres, cette ligne ferroviaire assurera les relations Annaba-Tunis à raison de deux à trois voyages, reliant les deux pays voisins, retenant comme point de passage la wilaya de Souk Ahras. S'agissant des tarifs des billets, notre source n'a rien laissé filtrer, estimant ne pas être habilitée à se prononcer sur la question. Hormis peut-être une probabilité de 2000 DA la place. Concernant les formalités douanières, elles se feront durant le trajet à bord du train, tant du côté algérien que tunisien, a expliqué la même source.

C'est au bonheur des adeptes des deux pays dont les liens de voisinage et de fraternité ont en fait un seul peuple qui circule dans un seul et unique Etat. Le moins que l'on puisse offrir c'est la facilité du déplacement, surtout en haute saison. Une période où le flux touristique entre les deux pays est important, notamment du côté algérien, dont le nombre de touristes a dépassé 1,5 million, qui ont franchi la frontière tunisienne en 2016. Idem pour nos voisins, les Tunisiens, dont, plus de 48.000 sont entrés en Algérie, à Annaba, pour une raison ou une autre. C'est pour dire que la remise en service de ce moyen de transport, le train en l'occurrence, boostera sans doute le secteur du tourisme dans les deux sens et renforcera les liens de solidarité et de fraternité entre les deux peuples déjà liés par le sang des martyrs communs de Sakiet Sidi Youcef.

Monday, February 27, 2017







ALGERIAN National Railways (SNTF) and Alstom have unveiled interior and exterior designs for a new fleet of Coradia Polyvalent bi-mode (diesel and 25kV ac electric) multiple units, which will be introduced on services from Algiers to Oran, Annaba, Constantine and Bechar from January 2018

SNTF awarded Alstom a contract worth around €200m in July 2015 to supply 17 six-car sets, which will be built at the company’s Reichshoffen plant in eastern France. Each 110m-long set will seat 254 passengers

Alstom and SNTF reveal the design of Alstom’s new "main line" train for Algeria

Quote:
Alstom and the National Rail Transportation Company of Algeria (SNTF) have unveiled the design of the new Coradia Polyvalent "main line" train destined to run in Algeria during the 4th edition of the International Transport, Logistics & Mobility Exhibition to be held in Algiers.

In July 2015, SNTF ordered 17 Coradia Polyvalent trains from Alstom as part of a project to modernise and extend its network. The trains’ entry into commercial service, notably connecting Algiers to the cities of Oran, Annaba, Constantine and Bechar, is scheduled from January 2018.

"The project is underway and is progressing extremely well - at full speed!" said Yacine Benjaballah, Managing Director of SNTF. "We are very satisfied with the progress made and the results obtained. This train will become a national asset, satisfying the needs of our passengers who will be proud to use it."

"The design of Coradia Polyvalent for SNTF was developed by Alstom's Design&Styling department in close collaboration with the SNTF teams. Through the design, the teams have attempted to evoke the modernisation, movement and beauty of Algeria’s landscapes with the shared goal of offering passengers a unique and comfortable travelling experience," said Henri Bussery, General Manager of Alstom Algeria.

The external livery of the train reflects the various landscapes travelled through (city, countryside, coasts, mountain), through its subtly reflective coating. The interior of the train is spacious and bright. The train is fully air-conditioned and has a dining area and comfortable seating.

Coradia Polyvalent for SNTF benefits from the latest technological innovations. It is a bimodal train (diesel or 25kV electric) capable of running at speeds of 160 km/h. With a total length of 110 metres, the train has six cars and can accommodate 254 passengers. It is adapted to the climatic and environmental conditions of the country with a highly efficient air conditioning system. Its low floor facilitates access and movement on board, in particular for people with reduced mobility (PMR). The architecture of the train and its powerful engine eliminates noises and vibrations, offering unrivalled comfort of travel.

The 17 trains are being manufactured at Alstom’s site in Reichshoffen, France. Four other Alstom sites in France are involved in the development of the trains: Le Creusot for the bogies, Ornans for the motors, Tarbes for the traction system and Villeurbanne for on-board electronic and passenger information systems.
