Btw Moroccan borders & Chlef (west part) : 359 km - 90% Finished

Btw Chlef & Bordj Bou Arréridj (center part) : 300 km - 90% Finished (the party of Algiers is U/C, because of the big project of interconnection of highways around the capital city)

Btw Bordj Bou Arréridj & Tunisian borders (east part) : 399 km - around 45% U/C


The project highway : 1216 Km.

How close to the border to Morocco will the motorway go? I know on the Moroccan side it will end just west of Oujda which is about 20 kms from the border with Algeria. Both Tlemcen and Oujda would benefit enormously from an opening of the border. Today, they are like dead ends. In a few weeks it's 15 years since the closure of the borders between the countries.

The interconnection of highway network could be advantageous for building common economic space. The connection project on a Tunisian highway already exists.

Algerian government decides not to open borders with Morocco for political and security reasons.

Well, it was because of an attack on a hotel in Marrakech where an Algerian was killed in August 1994 that the border was closed, so I think the decision was mutual from both governments.

But you didn't answer the main question. How far west from Tlemcen will the motorway go? It's still some 80 km to the border from there.

Algeria has changed its signage! :applause: Looks very similar to the Moroccan one. But why is this bypass only 2x2? I thought that all Algerian autoroutes were supposed to be 2x3?
