Algeria – Tlemcen – 2018

Tlemcen gondola lift

The Tlemcen gondola lift that connects the city centre to the Lalla Setti Plateau had been at a standstill for four years when it resumed service in 2018. The arrival of the gondola lift was the source of great hope, as it represents a means of transport with high added value for Tlemcen, the ultimate tourist destination.

The project

In northwestern Algeria, the Tlemcen gondola lift has benefited from a major retrofit operation to offer its users more security, availability and comfort.

This 10-seater gondola lift connects the city centre, from the historic site known as the “Grand Bassin”, to the Lala Setti Plateau, home to a leisure park.

Users benefit from a complete multimodal journey on the network, via the 3 stations, all connected to the city's public transport network. The rehabilitation project run by POMA was accompanied by the opening of a new coach station, “Yahia Bachir”.

A mixed urban – tourist ropeway
While Tlemcen’s gondola lift is essentially used by urban commuters during the week, the focus switches to tourists during weekends and holidays. This mixed use requires long opening hours, which are perfectly integrated in the modes of operation, offering a flexible, comprehensive service.
