Marché n. 5 – Eastern Lot of the East-West motorway
Algeria’s National Motorway Agency ANA (Agence Nationale des Autoroutes), which is in charge of the construction of the new infrastructure, after 7 years of work and 11.4 bn dollars spent, has almost completed its first megaproject, the construction of the East-West Motorway (1,216 km long), which runs from the western border with Morocco to the eastern border with Tunisia, connecting the country’s three major cities along the way: Constantine (Eastern lot), Algiers (Central lot) and Oran (Western lot). Approx. 121 km of the Eastern lot now remain to complete this infrastructure.
This is the most important infrastructure project ever built in Algeria.
ANAS,through ANAS International Enterprise, is responsible for the Site Supervision of the Eastern lot of the Motorway (399 Km).
ANAS International Enterprise was awarded an international contract, as part of a temporary association with the Italian-based companies ITALCONSULT, INCO and STE, and has been providing Site Supervision services (BSC - Bureau de Contrôle et Suivi) since August 2008.
In this role, it has also demonstrated control of a stretch of the road surface with its test and evaluation vehicles (TSD), and software, arousing the interest of the ANA for their extensive application in evaluating the quality of the works after their completion.
The Site Supervisory activities proved an important challenge for the ANAS - led grouping, which has deployed almost 500 persons – mostly Algerian technicians and engineers. Today, about 200 of the 399 km of the Eastern lot have been opened to traffic.
