Summary: The Tunisian national rail company, SNCFT
, granted a contract to the consortium lead by Alstom for installation of electrical work and signalling on the Tunis-Borj Cedria rail line
usually ensures the transportation of 20,000 thousand tons of phosphates per day from the mining basin to production units of the Tunisian Chemical Group in Gabes and Sfax, in addition to the delivery of nearly 1,200 tons of TSP.
The last of these credits is the one concluded last February 7 with the national railway company SNCFT

The project would help the Tunisian railway company SNCFT
to improve quality of services on the Tunis southern suburb's line.
