CAIRO | Cairo International Airport - Automated People Mover (Monorail) | Under Construction

The APM will integrate into the airport’s infrastructure to ensure a smooth and seamless passenger flow and reduce walking distances for passengers. Based on a "Cable Car System" which is a highly innovative public transportation rope-hauled system, the new APM will be a high-performance, cost-effective solution for passenger transportation at CAI. The main station will be located between T2/T3 and will become an integral part of the bridge connecting the two terminals. The 1.8 KM track will be ready in 24 Months after contract award i.e. the system will go into operation by the end of 2010.

Manufacturer: Poma-Leitner Group

No problem guys, anytime


Ok, this thread is lacking alot of project info since we were discussing this in the Terminal 3 thread. So here is some more info:

Quote:

Based on a "Cable Car System" which is a highly innovative public transportation rope-hauled system, the new APM will be a high-performance, cost-effective solution for passenger transportation at CAI. The main station will be located between T2/T3 and will become an integral part of the bridge connecting the two terminals. The 1.8 KM track is expected to go into operation by mid of 2011 and will link T1 , the Air Mall , the Multi-storey Car Park and Terminals 2/3.
From www.cairo-airport.com


Now, I have 2 very good videos, which I highly recommend!:

Video 1: http://www.cairo-airport.com/projects_ongoing.asp#apm (Go to the "Automated People Mover Section" and click on the "Click Here to watch the APM Video" link.

Video 2: http://www.vimeo.com/5999868 (this is a really great video, showing monorail cars, station design & info etc)



And finally, another pic I took:

Yeah, its a good idea. Its better to have 1 station for both T2 & T3, since they're both really close together, its more feasible.

Airport shuttle damaged in storm to be replaced by French manufacturer

Quote:
Cairo Airport Company Chairman Hassan Rashed has decided to send the electric shuttle train intended to link Cairo International Airport’s three main terminals back to France--where it was manufactured--to be replaced with a new one.

The decision came after the original shuttle was severely damaged by recent storms near Alexandria as it was being transported to Egypt by sea.

Rashed told Al-Masry Al-Youm that he had informed the French manufacturers of the shuttle of his decision, saying that, even if sea water had not leaked into the shuttle’s working parts, the vibrations that occurred as a result of the storm may have damaged it.

He went on to note that the relevant insurance company would be responsible for the transportation costs incurred by the shuttle's return to France. He stressed that, despite the setback, the shuttle service would commence operations in July as originally planned.

According to Rashed, the technical committee responsible for assessing damage to the shuttle was unable to assess the extent of the damage since the ship transporting it was still at sea.
And there goes the first delay!

lol, but this time it's out of hand they couldn't stop the storm.

On the other hand they could of predicted or had a Plan B.

Don't forget to post the source

Thanks for the update

لجنة فنية بميناء الأسكندرية لمعاينة القطار الآلى الخاص بربط 3 مبان بمطار القاهرة

Quote:
تبدأ غدا الأحد اللجنة الفنية، المشكل
ة من شركة القطارات الفرنسية وإدارة الجمارك والنيابة العامة وشركة التأمين فى معاينة عربات القطار الآلى، الخاص بربط المبانى الثلاثة لمطار القاهرة، لتحديد حجم الأضرار التى لحقت به، ومدى صلاحيته فنيا، بعد تعرض السفينة الناقلة له لعواصف شديدة قبالة سواحل الإسكندرية، أدت إلى جنوحها وإصابتها بأضرار بالغة.

صرح الطيار حسن راشد، رئيس شركة ميناء القاهرة الجوى بأنه فى حالة ما إذا تبين للجنة عدم صلاحية عربات القطار الثلاث للتشغيل، فإنه سيتم شحنها مرة أخرى إلى فرنسا وتسليمها للشركة الصانعة لتسلم عربات أخرى جديدة بدلا منها.

يذكر أن القطار الآلى، كان مقررا تركيبه وتشغيلة تجريبيا يوم الأربعاء الماضى بمطار القاهرة، إلا أن سوء الأحوال الجوية والأضرار التى لحقت بالسفينة الإيطالية الناقلة له، حالت دون وصوله فى الموعد المحدد.
http://www.soutalex.com/home/alexandria-news/4453.html

I hope that explains it. so now they finished the line that links T3 and they were going to ship the people move to Cairo Intl. T3 for first test by today and they failed to do that due to the bad weather condition.
