As part of plans in Algiers to renovate one of the country’s main rail branches, the French firm says it will sign a contract worth €268.5m ($390m) in the coming days.

With its consortium partners, the company will install new track signalling and communications equipment on the line, which connects Oran and Constantine with the capital.

The other members of the consortium are Vossloh-Cogifer and CSEE Alger.
