Transport represents one of the fundamental pillars of the sustainable development of any country. In Algeria, the transport sector knows a true change. A large number of projects were realized in order to make this more powerful. Constantine as the big cities in Algeria profited from modern means of transport: the tramway. After three years of its starting, the tramway knew several difficulties in terms of integration in the live of citizen. In this context, this work aims to make an analysis of the actual safety situation in the tramway based on the already achieved operating period and even propose actions meeting the demands of this operating period. This system seen in advanced technologies, put into operation for the first time in Algeria must be analyzed to justify that their safety level is sufficient opposite the severe risk acceptance criteria set by the national guidelines. The objective of this work has been to analyze accidents since its implementation already operating in 2013 and try to highlight the realities and prospects for railway safety in order to propose an action plan and recommendations for a safer transportation system. This work is a first safety analysis of a new guided mode of transport into service in Algeria.
