Railway connection between the Libyan Borders (Ras Jédir) to the Algerian Borders, Tunisia
||Improving the outline, doubling lanes, electrification and/or new railway line between the Libyan Border (Ras Jedir) and the Algerian Border (connection point still to define), enabling traffic of high-speed trains.
Implementation will be broken down in three sections:
1. North-South connection (Tunis/Gabès);
2. Connection with Algeria (Tunis/Algerian Border);
3. Connection with Libya (Gabès/Libyan Border).
|State of Play of the Project
||This is a long term project. The terms of reference for the design of this connection’s technical studies and the roadmap facilitating their implementation have been drafted. Tunisia is currently looking for funding for the execution of these studies in 2012.
||The cost estimate for the execution of technical and feasibility studies amounts estimated to 4 Million Euros. Studies will later determine the railway connection’s total cost.
||1. Drafting Terms of Reference to design of the connection’s technical studies and the roadmap facilitating their implementation, based on Tunisia’s needs => Assistance finalized in 2011 (ToR drafted).
2. Presentation of the project to BEI to explore its interest and possibilities to fund feasibility or construction studies => BEI/CE/CETMO work mission conducted on February 27/29, 2012. BEI is well prepared to analyze viability and pertinence to launch very short term technical studies that are required.
||The Tunisian Ministry of Transport is in charge of developing the construction, modernization and extension of the railway network and the railway’s main operator is SNCFT. SNCFT is a public company and is responsible for the management of different assets and properties assigned to it by the State as a concession, and to operate railway transport services (passengers/goods) throughout the network.

||Construction of a new generation port in the deep waters offshore Enfidha region with the contribution of the private sector.
|State of Play of the Project
||All studies have been finalized, both the detailed constructive project and the Tender’s Terms of Reference. Tunisia’s current situation calls for the review of the implementation strategy of Enfidha deep waters port. The project remains a priority for the Ministry of Transport, but its roadmap is being reconsidered to adapt new priorities of the new Government.
||The cost estimate amounts to 1,368 Billion Euros.
||The EU’s Technical Assistance offered through CETMO’s service contract has focused on the railway project in compliance with the Ministry of Transport.
||The Ministry of Transport is responsible for the planning of ports infrastructure projects and for the design of these projects and the execution of ports infrastructures. The authority in terms of maritime transport and ports falls under the competency of the Ministry of Transport through OMMP, which is in charge of managing commercial ports.
