Year: 2017 – 2018
For UTE Tranvía Ouargla and Entreprise du Métro d’Alger – EMA
Project: Tramway Shelter Stations
Designer: Systra

The development program launched by the Algerian government to meet the growing demand for public transport has resulted in the creation of Algeria’s first tramway line.

The route is 7.2 km long and includes 13 stations served by 40-metre long trams capable of transporting up to 400 passengers during peak hours.

Each shelter is made of painted and hot-galvanized steel, complete with comfortable seats and characterized by large windows screen-printed with elegant floral motifs that enliven the entire structure.
To complete the project, air-conditioned kiosks were also installed as ticket offices, and stylistic continuity was achieved by adopting a decorative floral patterning.
