Project Description
The Gabès – Médenine railway line project consists in a new rail line, connecting Médenine in Southern Tunisia to the SNCFT national railway network from Gabès. Investment costs vary from TD 240 to 600 MM depending on technical variants. The project is planned to be implemented in 2022. Launched in 1985 and interrupted in 1988 after three years of land acquisition and infrastructure works at 45% completion, the project has been reprogrammed as part of the 2016-2020 development plan. To avoid high expropriations costs and delays, the current project is expected to stay within the area planned and acquired in the 80s. The project will also pave the way for future rail projects, including: . The railway connection to Tataouine . The link to the port and the logistics zone of Zarzis . A rail connection to Libya
