Lovely, i have read a little bit about the Algiers subway in the past. This will bring the total subway/metro systems in Africa to 3 when we include the Egypt metro and the Gautrain in Johannesburg (under construction).

How fast can the trains go with the Algiers subway and how many kilometers does the whole track covers? Also how much is Algeria investing in this subway in total? I understand that its due to go live in the next few weeks/months?

Invitations to tender were launched for the realization of a section of 4 km between Bachdjarrah and El Harrach composed of 4 stations and one viaduct of 250 meters above the strap motorway Ouchaïah Wadi.

The Gaama group which carried out the first section quoted of 250 million euros including/understanding the realization of a multimode station (drunk subway/train//taxis) on the level of the railway station of El Harrach.
Two other extensions of line 1 are envisaged to the horizon 2010:
