Cabinet allocates 5.2B EGP for Egyptian companies to build 4 metro stations



CAIRO: The Cabinet allocated 5.2 billion EGP ($668.8 million) to build four metro stations, which would be the first metro project to be executed by Egyptian companies.

The four stations belong to the second part of Metro Line 3’s fourth phase. They will be established by the Arab Contractors and Orascom Construction Industries.

The aboveground stations will expand over 6.3 kilometers from Nozha station in Heliopolis to in Salam City on Cairo-Ismailia Desert Road, near the Ring Road.

Meanwhile, a Belgian consulting firm won a tender by the National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) to review French and Spanish offers to execute the third phase of the third line of Cairo metro before 2016, acting head of NAT Sameh Refat told Youm7 Sept. 2.

The Fourth Phase of the Third Metro Line project is planned to connect el-Salam City on Cairo-Ismailia road to Heliopolis and Cairo Airport over 18.7 kilometers and 15 stations, according to the website of the National Authority for Tunnels.

Cairo subway is essential for transporting millions of people every day; huge traffic jams occur above the ground if the metro is out of services.

Monorail to be established in Egypt by 2018

MAY 2, 2015
CAIRO POST


CAIRO: A monorail train will be established to connect three cities in the Cairo metropolitan area, according to the Ministry of Housing Saturday.

The hanging train would be the first of its kind in Egypt, and will connect Cairo and Giza governorates to 6 of October City.

Construction is scheduled to start in January 2016 and to end by mid-2018, with a 30-month scheduled timeline.

The housing ministry has published a concept design of the train, in which the Mall of Arabia Shopping Center, situated in 6 of October City, appears in the background.

The $1.5 billion project aims to serve residential neighborhoods the industrial city.

Although it is classified as part of Giza governorate, 6 of October City is located in the desert far from downtown Cairo and active districts; 17 km from the Giza Pyramids and 32 Km from downtown Cairo.

The 6 of October City is reachable through the Mehwar Bridge or (6 of October Corridor) that starts from the 26th July Corridor near Zamalek and Mohandiseen, and has an exit to the Cairo –Alexandria Desert Road.

The to-be-established monorail would include 17 stations grouped into two phases; 12 in the first phase and five in the second one.

Two stations would be established in the Sheikh Zayed City, a district in 6 of October City and situated about 15 km from Lebanon Square, Mohandiseen District.

The monorail project will be implemented by an Egyptian-Canadian coalition, whose technical and financial bid was selected by the Ministry of Housing.

The New Urban Communities Authority will pay the cost of the project in installments over 14 years.

The Canadian party of the coalition is represented by the Bombardier Transportation Canada Inc., which has implemented similar projects in some 18 countries, including the United States, Spain, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Germany and Canada.

The local partners are represented in the two Egyptian companies: the Arab Contractors and Orascom Construction Industries.
Here is the model of the likely Monorail

Heliopolis tramway revival memorandum signed
11 May 2016



EGYPT: The Ministry of International Co-operation and the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development have signed a memorandum of understanding which could lead to EBRD contributing US$250m to a planned US$500m rehabilitation of the out-of-use Heliopolis tramway between Ramses station and the Almaza district of Cairo.

The memorandum is an early stage in the process, and timescales are still to be agreed. EBRD said it expects to provide a sovereign loan of up to US$125m to finance infrastructure works which would be implemented by the National Authority for Tunnels, while a second tranche of up to US$125m would be provided ‘potentially to a private company for the procurement of rolling stock and for the operation and maintenance of the fleet’

Finally some news!

Egypt to establish skytrain worth $4.5bn - LINK
Egypt’s Prime Minister Sherif Ismail met on Tuesday with the Canadian ambassador in Cairo and representatives of Bombardier Inc. to discuss the establishment of a monorail (a single rail skytrain) to link Giza and 6th of October City. The project, in which the multinational Canadian transportation company will play a part, aims to facilitate means of transport for Giza residents, and will be a step toward solving the problem of overpopulation in urban centers, said Ismail during the meeting.

“The Cabinet attaches great importance to the transport sector during the current period,” he stated. “[We are] propelling the studies on the project forward” especially studies on the economic aspects of maintenance, operating cost and the project’s funding ”aiming to see them completed as soon as possible,” he added.

The skytrain enjoys many advantages in terms of ease of construction and the use of environmentally friendly energy.

The rail line is planned to be 35 km long, divided over ten stations and will transport about 270,000 passengers a day. The journey time from Giza to 6th of October City will be 38 minutes.

Very bad news for Cairo, LAZ is one of the poorest quality of all buses on the market. In Macedonia and Bulgaria LAZ buses (and trolleybuses) go out of service after 5-8 years.

NUCA agrees with Canadian Bombardier to implement monorail line in New Administrative Capital

The New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA) signed a memorandum of understanding with
Canadian Bombardier to conduct feasibility studies on a monorail line connecting Nasr City to the New Administrative Capital.



The Urban Communities Authority (NUCA) signed a memorandum of understanding with Canadian Bombardier to conduct feasibility studies on a monorail line connecting Nasr City to the New Administrative Capital.

Mazen Hassan, the vice chairperson of NUCA for the Commercial, Administrative, and Financial Affairs, said that the Canadian company will conduct feasibility studies, which include preliminary studies of transportation and ticket costs as well as financial and economic studies.

He added that the authority will coordinate with the Ministry of Transport at all stages of the study to provide the Canadian company with all the required information, such as the infrastructure along the route and the number of passengers, expected to reach 1.5 million passengers similar to Cairo Metro.

Sami Abu Zaid, the housing minister adviser, said that the memorandum of understanding stressed the use of Egyptian products according to the Egyptian regulations.

He added that the Canadian company will evaluate the potential partnership with Egyptian and international contracting companies.

The Ministry of Housing has discussed with the Ministry of Transport a project to link the new administrative capital with the railway network, in addition to the project of electric train (10th of Ramadan, Belbeis, the New Administrative Capital).

The Ministry of Transport is also negotiating with the Chinese company AVIC to implement the electrified train project (New Administrative Capital-10th of Ramadan-Salam) after the Economic Committee of the cabinet has agreed to resume negotiations with the Chinese Bank ACSM on a loan worth $1bn. The first area in the New Administrative Capital amounts to 12,000 acres with initial investments of about EGP 60bn out of a total of 168,000. The project’s management company was established with a paid up capital of EGP 6bn distributed between the armed forces and NUCA.

Gov’t to upgrade first line of Cairo’s metro

CAIRO – 28 October 2017: As per the Prime Minister’s directions to raise the efficiency of the first line of Cairo’s Metro, Transport Minister Hisham Arafat said Saturday that the government will develop the first line at a cost of €360 million.

He added that another phase of developing the metro will include the purchase of 32 air-conditioned wagons, in addition to executing the third and fourth metro lines.

Egypt is seeking to cooperate with France to resume the construction of Cairo Metro Line 3, Arafat said on the sidelines of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's visit to France last week.

The third line connects Attaba in east-central Cairo with Abbasiya and Heliopolis. It will extend from the northwest of the Greater Cairo area at Imbaba district to the northeast, serving Cairo International Airport.

Arafat said that Egypt is negotiating with France to finance the next phase of the third line.

Last week, Egypt and France has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to strengthen bilateral cooperation in the public transport sector.

Hill secures role on Cairo Metro
The European Investment Bank (EIB) has appointed Hill International to provide project management services and technical assistance for the latest phase of the Cairo Metro - Line 3 project in Egypt.

The six-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately US$4.4m (£3.3m).

The Egyptian National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) is constructing the new mass transit system in response to a growing population and escalating traffic and road problems. The transit master plan includes six metro lines, two of which are complete (Line 1 and Line 2). Line 3, which is partially in operation, is being constructed in phases. Phase 1 is currently operational, phase 2 is partially operational and phase 3 has begun. Hill's scope pertains to Line 3, phase 3.

Line 3 connects Attaba in east-central Cairo with Abbasia and Heliopolis to the northeast. When complete, the line will extend from the northwest of the Greater Cairo area at Imbaba to the northeast serving the Cairo International Airport. The total length of the line will be approximately 30.6km of which 28.1km is underground section.

“Cairo is the largest city in Africa and ranked as one of the most densely populated cities in the world,” said Waleed Abdel-Fattah, senior vice president and managing director of Hill's North Africa region. “This metro system will have an immense impact on Cairo's traffic congestion and the quality of life of its citizens.”

And new rail lines for the new capital Cairo, crossposted from the Egypt subforum:

Quote:
And just to recap the project, here's what it says about the capital (cut and paste):


Overview:
  1. The city will eventually stretch over a staggering 490 square kilometres, with the first phase, which will take at least five years, encompassing 168 square kilometres. That alone would swallow up a major portion of Cairo's area.
  2. The new capital will boast the tallest building on the African continent.


Infrastructure:
  1. two pipelines will connect the new capital with the Nile, each with pumping stations with a capacity of 125,000 cubic metres per day. Eventually a third line will provide water from the Red Sea, presumably desalinated.
  2. During the first five-year phase, 240,000 housing units will be constructed, 30,000 of them underway now, with many nearing completion.
  3. The Council of Ministers building and a parliament building are under construction at the head of a long concourse lined by 32 ministries.
  4. The headquarters of the Coptic Church has been asked to move out there, and construction of a new cathedral twice the size of Cairo's main cathedral is already well underway. A grand mosque will be built across the street.
  5. The supreme court will move there as well.


Transportation:
  1. A new airport built specially for the capital has just opened, initially for domestic flights but eventually for international flights as well.
  2. Two rail lines will connect Cairo to the capital, but not conveniently unless you live in one of the new upscale communities east of the present city.
  3. An electric rail, already under construction, will use the existing Cairo-Suez rail line, but will only go as far as Adly Mansour station at the very end of Cairo's third metro line, itself well beyond Cairo Airport. That means 18 stops, or over an hour, just to get from central Cairo to the new train line.
  4. A second line, an elevated monorail, will eventually connect the capital to Cairo's south eastern outskirts.


Services:
  1. The city will have its own financial district, where the central bank and stock exchange will relocate. Commercial and investment banks will be asked to transfer their headquarters there too.


Recreation:
  1. A 35-km-long central green belt covering 5,000 feddans (2,100 hectares) will wind through the city's centre.
  2. The city will have fitness trails, a sculpture garden, an outdoor adventure park for mountain biking and rock climbing, a "healing and sensory garden", an "earth garden with canals and fossil trails", bicycle and pedestrian paths, horseback riding trails and waterways for canoeing and sailing, a "floating forest", meditation gardens, reflection pond, a manmade river and a wetland park.
  3. There will also be a zoo and wildlife park, an aquarium with a dolphin show area, an arboretum and botanical gardens.
  4. According to a map, a new amusement park with a 250 metre Ferris wheel is planned. This would eclipse the current highest Ferris wheel, the 168-metre High Roller in Las Vegas.
  5. The city will also have a sports stadium, sports fields, an amphitheatre, an observatory, a museum of science and technology and an art museum.
  6. The site for a new opera house is already under preparation.
  7. In short, there will be 2.15 square metres of green space per capita.

Official Spokesperson of the National Authority for Tunnels (NAT), Hassan Tawfiq, said that the NAT and the consortium will sign the financial contract at end of December, after which construction will commence in the Haram area.

Tawfik also revealed that the NAT has identified the route of an electric train connecting Cairo’s al-Salam area with the new administrative capital east of Cairo through 11 stations.
