Rabat- The first rake of coaches of the high-speed train between Tangier and Casablanca is expected to arrive in Morocco next week.

According to ONCF, Morocco’s national railway operator, the manufacturing of the coaches of the high-speed train has now reached an advanced stage, adding that the coaches will undergo a series of static and dynamic tests, audits and updates.

The company said in a communiqué carried by news website H24info that the high-speed train would initially run on the existing conventional rail network. The train would be rolled out on the high-speed line starting from the last quarter of the current year.

ONCF said it will acquire 12 high-speed coaches, adding that construction work is progressing at a fast pace after solving all constraints and technical problems.

The high-speed train project has reached 70 percent in completion while the rest will be delivered progressively until the end of 2016, the statement added.
