The section tested is 2km long, connecting the secondary storage park T2 with SNTF station. The total length of the Mostaganem tramway project is 14km and it will have 24 stations. To deliver the project Alstom is working with Cosider Travaux Publics/Cosider Ouvrages d’Art. The test run was observed by the Algerian transport minister, the governor of Mostaganem and representatives from Alstom Algeria.
“Mostaganem tramway is a very important system project for Alstom and was expected by the public since a long time. We are pleased to have achieved this significant milestone despite the various delays as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. The next steps will be the rigorous dynamic tests to ensure smooth running and guarantee maximum safety for both the passengers and the operator. We will pursue our long-term partnership in the country to better address the customers’ mobility needs and offer them smart, green & innovative solutions fitting with their expectations.”
