This was the last stage of Ennouasser-Jorf Lasfar line signalling system modernisation project.

The ONCF entrusted the renovation of the line's signalling system to Alstom in 2006. The Ennouasser-Jorf Lasfar line is 100 km long and has seven stations. The 20.5 millions euros contract covered the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the signalling equipment. Alstom contributes to the improved safety, reliability and comfort of the line that can be operated in both directions now, thanks to automatic bright blocs with IPCS (Installations Permanentes de ContreSens - Permanent bi-directional installations) and thanks to computerized interlocking machines installed in 6 stations.

Present in Morocco for over 40 years, Alstom is helping to make the country's rail network a future-oriented means of transport for both freight and passengers, and an effective development tool for the Kingdom of Morocco. Alstom has already been responsible for modernising the signalling equipment of the Oujda-Marrakech line. The Rabat tramway contract, as well as the contract for the delivery of the 20 Prima locomotives, illustrate Alstom's highly active presence in Morocco, with the ultimate goal of providing innovative, environmentally-friendly solutions.
