Due for completion in 2010, Algeria’s $11.2 billion East-West Highway development is the world’s largest current highway construction project.

The development, financed by the Algerian Government, will extend 1,216km and ensure the link between Annaba in the north-east and Tlemcen in the north-west – passing directly through 24 provinces and linking Algeria to Tunisia and Morocco. The highway is a landmark infrastructure investment for Algeria that will meet transport needs, improve road safety and help create a profitable new socio-economic region capable of attracting investments.

The largest project is the $5bn Eastern section of the Highway, which will be a 399km, six-lane motorway that includes 190 bridges and viaducts and five tunnels. This section is being delivered by COJAAL, a joint venture comprising five of Japan’s largest companies: Kajima and Taisei, Japan’s two largest contractors; general contractors Hazama and Nishimatsu; and trading house Itochu.

Ce chantier mobilise énormément de matériel de construction, je suis curieux de savoir combien de camions, pelleteuses et autres sont nécessaires pour ce travail.

Merci Abdeka pour les infos apparamment j'ai été trompé par un article (je ne me souviens plus le titre et l'auteur) qui affirmait que l'autoroute est construit exclusivement avec la main d'oeuvre chinoise.

L'Algérienne de gestion des autoroutes (AGA) a choisi la société portugaise Brisa Engenharia E Gestao SA pour l'accompagner dans la gestion de la future autoroute est-ouest. Cette société vient en effet de décrocher le contrat relatif à l'appui technique dans le domaine de l'entretien et l'exploitation des autoroutes à péage, a appris toutsurlalgerie auprès du ministère des Travaux publics. Montant du contrat: 331 millions de dinars, soit 4 millions d'euros.

Great project! I really hope that it will be able to connect to the Moroccan Rabat-Oujda autoroute. In 2011 they will be only some 20 kms apart, but with a closer frontier between them. It's so sad.

The East-West will be accompanied by the implementation of 60 service areas. These service stations, units of the National Gendarmerie and Emergency Preparedness. It recommends that a study conducted by a French office, at a study day on the service areas held last Thursday, attended by the Minister of Public Works, Mr. Amar Ghoul, the Energy and Mines, Chakib Khelil, and the Minister Delegate to the Minister of National Defense, Abdelmalek Guenaïzia. Other facilities are also planned: a call for emergency assistance, cafeterias and restaurants, places of worship, car parks and rest areas. The study recommends certain criteria for the location of facilities.
Example: the distance between two service stations is 80 km, the police units and Civil Defense is 45 km and that of the rest areas 25 km.
Speaking at the opening of this study day, Mr. Ghoul mentioned "an intelligent distribution of these areas with adequate signage and in accordance with international standards." The Minister said that "the management and operation of these areas could generate up to 300 direct jobs and 000 indirect. "The work of carrying out the various areas of services provided under this project are supported by the government. A specification defining their use is under preparation, while the choice of operators eligible for the exploitation of these areas will be done through competitive bidding, "says Amar Ghoul.
About the highway exit, A. Ghoul stressed that "the price has already been set by the government by recalling, once again, it would be" symbolic "and affordable for all users." The Minister however did not want to reveal the price of tolls. He had merely stated that "time is not yet appropriate to disclose the price."
A. Ghoul will know, moreover, the creation of a radio for future users of the road structure. The radio will provide information services, counseling and recreational users of the highway. The Minister of Energy and Mines has expressed, on the other hand, the availability of his department to assist the project by the aggregate supply and strengthening the network of service stations operated by the Company for distribution of products petroleum (Naftali). About the C. Khelil has been supported by the director of marketing Naftali, Mr. Abdelhamid Mezidi, who announced that Naftali plans to rehabilitate 322 service stations by 2009. Believing that all stations meet the international standards of safety, Mr. Mezidi note that the operation will cost around 900 million dinars.
