Project Description
The Sousse – Kasserine rail line project consists in rehabilitating an old rail line and building a new section to link the port of Sousse to the inland city of Kasserine. The project is estimated to cost TND 550 million (without rolling stocks), and would be completed in 2026. Railway line 11 between Sousse and Kasserine was originally built in 1909. In 1969, the section linking Kairouan was cut off due to floods, and the line was fully closed in 1982, after the construction of the Sidi Saad dam. In 2012, SNCFT (National Railway Company) commissioned BTE to conduct Preliminary Design Studies to reopen line 11. The technical and economic feasibility study of Kalaa Soughra – Kairouan section, funded by an EIB grant to the State of Tunisia, was completed in June 2018. In collaboration with the Ministry of Transport, SNCFT is currently concerting with EIB for Detailed Design Studies, prior to the launch of a call for tenders for the Works.
