Algeria: railway linking M’sila and Algiers in operation

Services began last week on the railway line linking M’sila and Algiers with the opening of a railcar service between these two cities, located 250 km apart. The speed of the railcar on some sections of the line will exceed the 120km/hr mark. The railcar is the second to operate from M’sila, with the first one already running return services to Constantine.
