Algeria Transport 2013
With $286bn allocated to major infrastructure developments, the government has devised a five-year plan for improving connections, including road networks, ports, urban mass transport and rail lines. Three major highway projects are either under way or in planning, including the East-West Highway, the Hauts Plateau Highway and the North-South Highway. The government is also expanding capacity at existing ports, as well as constructing new ones, and is set to invest more funds in urban transport options. Besides the existing tramline and metro in Algiers, 2013 marked the launch of new tram systems in both Oran and Constantine. A total of 14 other cities currently have above-ground mass transit systems in the planning stage, with the government set to invest a total of $6bn. This chapter contains an interview with Takao Omori, CEO, Portek International.
