Work is now underway on a series of projects in Algeria, including the East West Highway and a key highway bypass. The 67km Khémis Miliana-Berrouaghia bypass is expected to cost around US$836 million, with work due for completion at the end of 2016. The project is being handled by an Algerian/Italian team.

The Djebel El Ouahch bypass is now open to traffic. This forms part of the important East-West highway. The 30km stretch between Didouche-Mourad and Ain Bouziane (Skikda) has also been opened. The Djebel El Ouahch bypass, cost $73.86 million and will improve traffic flow in the city of Constantine. The Algerian Government is keen to complete the last 84km section of the East West highway. This section of the route is located in the country’s El Tarf region. Works have been delayed due to a disagreement between the national motorway agency ANA and the Cojaal consortium. The government has stressed that works will be completed with or without Cojaal.

Work is also being carried out on a 520km section of the Blida à El Menea (Ghardaïa) North-South highway. Work will be carried out on the remaining 300km at a later date. The work is currently being carried out between Chiffa and Ghardaïa.

Plans are in hand to widen the RN1 road connecting Ghardaïa and El Meneaa. Upgrading and modernising this route will also include adding measures to prevent flooding, a frequent problem at present. The study for the works is being handled by a specialist based in Oran.

And construction of the Ouargla 10km bypass is around 65% complete at present, with the work due for completion in April 2016. The first 3km stretch of the road is expected to be operational as early as January 2016. The construction of the bypass has experienced delays due to the need for the relocation of electrical cabling and the protection of existing pipelines.
