The special delegates of the Regional Council of Sousse Governorship (Tunisia) have approved the metro project in Sousse, a resort which attracts many tourists.
The project will require a total investment of around EUR 152 million and will add to the current metro system in Sahel (Sousse-Monastir-Mahdia).
The first line is expected to link Sousse to Kalaâ Kebira and then extend to Enfidha, in the second phase of the project. The second railway will start from Sousse city centre to Kalaâ Sghira and Msaken. The third line will stretch on Sousse-ville – Sousse-south– Msaken route.
The members of the Board, reunited in the second session of the year, were notified about the preliminary study of the project elaborated by the regional department of Tunisia National Railways (SNCFT).
The project will be presented to the Ministry of Transport to accelerate its implementation.
