So there are no more trams in cairo at all?

And what happened to the Supertram project? Was it cancelled?

Nice! This looks to be the first new stretch of Cairo Metro to open in the last 6 years. Which stations will open - the ones from Attaba to Al Ahram?

According to an article in Al-Masri Al-Youm (http://www.almasryalyoum.com/en/node/586241), only five stations on line 3 are scheduled to open this week - Attaba through Abbasiya.

Phase 2 is going to be complete next year Q3 I think. And here is the construction.

Heliopolis Tram?

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1287473

As well as are plans to upgrade the system itself as it costs more to operate than the revenue.

What's the rationale to consigning that terminus to single-tracking instead of double? Illogical outcome for such a populated city, don't you think?

It's not a terminus. The line is only partially complete. And I think the false platform is probably temporary until the rest of the line is complete

Ah! the city there's so busy that segments must be opened before any completion So might this mean completion there's constrained to nightime activity or(and?) does it (additionally?) occur during service periods? Either way, how many hours to a nightly(daily?) period of construction? So just how is muddling up direction of travel by passengers waiting at that station there avoided, is it?
