In July 2015, the Entreprise du Métro d’Alger awarded the project to a consortium made up of Alstom as managing contractor and its partner, Cosider Travaux Publics, for the turnkey construction of the extension of the Constantine tram line. The line is 10.3 kilometers long, connecting the station of Zouaghi to the University Constantine 2 Abdelhamid Mehri, located in the new city of Ali Mendjeli, in 26 minutes.

The extension strengthens the urban transport network by allowing access, for residents, from the old to the new city.

As part of this project, Alstom built telecommunications, signalling, traction power, ticketing and rail systems, including the overhead lines.
