German, Bombardier Transportation, and local partner Arab Contractors, Orascom Construction has signed an agreement with the National Authority for Tunnels to build and design two new monorail lines connecting East Cairo with the

New Administrative Capital – stretching 54 km – and 6th October with Giza – stretching 42 km. The Consortium will also be responsible for Operation and Maintenance for 30 years upon the completion of the construction phase. With the

urban integration, iconic aesthetics, attractive infrastructure, and operating speeds up to 80 km/h of the new monorail system, the two lines will be able to transport around 45,000 passengers per hour in each direction when reaching

maximum capacity.

This collaboration “highlights our strength in the transportation sector and emphasizes our position as the partner of choice for international contractors in Egypt particularly on challenging projects” says Osama Bishai, Chief Executive

Officer of Orascom Construction.
