Morocco has allocated funding for the Tangier-Casablanca high-speed train line project.

The project will receive MAD4.8bn ($536m) from the state and MAD1bn ($111m) from the Hassan II Fund for Economic and Social Development.

The scheme has also received MAD1.9bn ($212m) from France and Europe, and MAD12.3bn ($1.37bn) in other loans.

Work on the project is expected to begin in June 2010 and the line will be operational by 2015, according to the Morocco Board News Service.
