The Nouadhibou Transit Authority (NTA) has worked in agrement with the Eurasian Multinational Group (EMG) To creat a mass transit system in Nouadhibou. The only current form of it is an old rail track up the coast, which is berly used today.
The old Noudhibou Link Station, was torn down. Its central location is making roads in the area too conjested. The rail line will be moved to a different location, to be built at a later date. Many people protested the destruction of the historical station, but it was ultimitly decided that it would be dismantled and re-built in a new location.
The new Station is for the newly constructed/under construction El-Rail/Subway System. Nouadhibou officials are trying to introduce Mass-Transit to the city. A private company financed the construction of the station, if they could build a mini-mall adjacent to the station. I goes upwardz more than anything else, contaning over 1,000 stores up 9 stories. Included is a Field atop the roof.
Going North the El crosses a major avenue.
Muion Station Was built inbetween Central Station And North City (Which you will see soon). It used to be an abandoned rail stop, but now is replaced by the El-Rail. Some shops were also built on the exess land.
South of Central Station, the rail line that goes there has been abandoned for many years.
Almost the entire length of the rail, the El was built right over it to preserve money. A Subway is being planned for many other areas of the city, but in this case, an Elevated Rail would be signifintly cheaper.
Were the main avenue used-to cross the abandoned rail, the avenue was ran on the ground and then the El was ran to the Wasbi Dstrict Station. A "poorer" area of the city, where a small powerplant was also built. Oficials were stumped on wether to run a spur here, but because of the powerplant, it was decided to be built.
