Train to link Algeria, Tunisia

The Algerian National Transportation Company (SNTF) and the Tunisian National Railways (SNCFT) will start operating six trips by train a week, a source in Algeria said.

The first trip will depart from Algeria on Sunday while the first trip from Tunisia will depart the following day.

Algeria’s An-Nahar newspaper reported that the following trip from Algeria will depart on Tuesday heading to Tunisia, while the return trip will depart on the following day.

Tickets for the service will be valid for three months and can be purchased on the internet or from any station in Algeria or Tunisia.

The average number of passengers per trip is expected to be 300, which means that the national railway company will be able to transport 1,800 passengers a week.

Passport control and border police teams will inspect the trains to facilitate passenger movement.

Previous trips were postponed due to technical problems.

Here you may find an updated map of railway lines in Algeria.

If you activate the "Nouvelles Gares" layer, recently built stations are shown. By clicking on them, a pop-up shows the year of inauguration.

gree line: Line in operation
red line: Line section U/C
pink line: Construction abandoned or recent line closed

Hope this may help understanding the ambitious Algerian railway infrastructure construction initiative...

Transmach holding Company is interested in Algerian markets
Quote:


May 10, 2017

The Russian company, specializing in the production and maintenance of train and train wagons, Transmash Holding, is seriously interested in the Algerian market, leconews website reported on Wednesday.

For its first participation in the 50th edition of the international fair of Algiers which takes place at Safex, the Russian manufacturer of trains affirms interest in the Algerian rail market which is experiencing a great expansion.

According to the commercial representative of Transmash holding, the company is looking for markets in Algeria.

Moreover, aware the crisis’ impact on the realization of the projects in the country, our interlocutor told us that the company “is ready to finance the projects” in case the government decides to solicit TRANSMASH HOLDING products.

Our company “can’t only finance the projects but also guarantee a maintenance service for all its products for a long time”, she added.

For accuracy, Transmach holding company has a huge expertise in its field, with a very high production capacity.

The Russian group, which is at the same time partner with French ALSTOM in 73% in Russia, “does not try to compete on the Algerian market,” said the same source.

“We are first of all aiming at the markets of North Africa and the Middle East, Iran, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria and the United Arab Emirates. In some of these countries we have already opened our own productions”, announced the Russian Company in its latest edition of the monthly Magazine.

The longest railway tunnel in the history of Algeria is on course for completion. The construction of the Gantas railway tunnel is part of the project of doubling the track with rectification of the railway line between the stations of El Affroun and Khémis Miliana of the Algiers-Oran line. The total length of this two-tube tunnel is 14.68 km. The left side is 7.3 km long, and the right side is slightly longer 7.355 km. Currently, 13.70 km have been dug, representing a completion rate of 93.2%. The work is being done by China's CRCC / CCECC Group and is expected to be complete in July 2017.

The SNTF receives a second loan for its modernization A new plan on the rails

Quote:
The objective of this modernization plan is to reach the threshold of 60 million passengers and 17 million tonnes
of freight per year from 2020.


Modern design and comfort worthy of international standards in our trains as of next March. Yacine Bendjaballah, general manager of the National Railway Transport Company (SNTF), who was speaking yesterday on Channel 3, promises to do so.

The company, which has been in deficit and short-listed since 2011, has just won a second bank loan to continue its growth program, begun in 2015, through an agreement with BNA. "We already had a loan of 68 billion dinars to finance the 2015-2020 growth program which is progressing very well and we have just released a second loan of 58 billion dinars for a second program (2020-2025) which must support the growth established by the first program, "explains Yacine Bendjaballah.

"This sum will be used to finance the acquisition of new trains, spare parts and the realization of various infrastructures to accompany the new train lines received to date," said the same source. Under these two programs, the rehabilitation of railway stations and the installation of electronic signage, new services, acquisition of new infrastructure and new trains are planned.

Creating a Railway Policy

"We will enter a new phase of professionalization of the staff and the creation of a railway police, which must be framed by legislation, training and upgrading of personnel", announces it still. The objective of this modernization plan is to reach the threshold of 60 million passengers and 17 million tonnes of freight per year from 2020 onwards. But not only will the company become profitable by then.

Once this first objective has been achieved, SNTF will have to "develop its activities around the industrial fabric, including the phosphate processing plants and the major industrial centers of the country, among which is the forthcoming entry into operation of the" Bellara iron and steel plant ".

The SNTF currently has the necessary production tools, says its director, quoting "the acquisition of 30 locomotives and 380 phosphate transport wagons as well as the availability of the spare part for the next ten years, adds the transport of containers from the port of Djendjen ". Its director also announced that all the old trains used by the SNTF will be renovated or replaced by new ones. The signing ceremony of the agreement between the SNTF and the BNA will be held before the end of the week.

first coradia for algeria out of factory
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.
