24 months ! That is definitely not realistic for a HSR. I wish, they would upgrade the current railway system in Egypt instead under the same PPP scheme

I think that will be the case, they amended the law in late 2017 to allow private sector participation.

Private sector may operate railway lines, says Egypt Transport Minister - LINK

Egypt’s Transport Minister Hisham Arafat said that the cabinet endorsed during its meeting on Wednesday amendments to Law 152 of 1980 on Egypt’s National Railway Authority to allow the private sector to operate and maintain railway lines.

In statements to press after the meeting, Arafat said that the government would be more of a regulator giving the right to operate for the private sector, while the government would still monitor and set prices for the service.

Arafat pointed out that giving operation or maintenance rights to the private sector would be through a contract that does not exceed 15 years which will include the right to build new lines.

The network includes three lines that will be executed in order of priority. The first links Ain Sokhna to New Alamein. It will start from the New Administrative Capital (NAC) passing through Ain Sokhna and 6th of October City until New Alamein. There will be a branch at Nubareya that extends to Alexandria through Borg al-Arab city.

The first phase of that line will stretch from NAC until the 6th of October City over 122 kilometers and be linked with Rod al-Farag Axis. The second phase will extend from 6th of October City untill New Alamein over 210 kilometers passing in parallel to Rod alFarag – Dabaa axis. That phase will have a branch line that starts from Nubareya at Beheira governorate and ends in Alexandria passing through Borg al-Arab over 99 kilometers. The third phase links NAC with Ain Sokhna, and lies over 92 kilometers.

The second line links 6th of October City with Upper Egyptian governorates until Aswan. The third line will start from Ain Sokhna and passes through Marsa Alam and Hurghada until it ends in Luxor. Ain Sokhna and Luxor will be the junction stations of the first and third lines. The speed of passenger and freight trains will be 250 km/h and 160 km/h respectively.
