Egypt installs first monorail train on East Nile track

CAIRO – 6 June 2022: Six new trains will arrive Monday to be installed on the Monorail line in the New Administrative Capital, while the seventh train is expected to arrive on Wednesday.


This is part of a total of 40 trains to be installed to the East Nile Monorail project, while the manufacturing of the rest of the fleet of mobile units for the project is underway.


The rest of the trains of the fleet will arrive successively according to the stipulated schedule.


Work in full swing to complete the implementation of the project according to the schedule, as this project is considered one of the mass transportation that will serve the new republic, whose foundations were established by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.


The project will connect the Greater Cairo Region with the new urban areas and cities in the east (New Cairo - the Administrative Capital) and will contribute to facilitating the movement of employees and expatriates from Cairo and Giza to New Cairo and the Administrative Capital.


It is also planned that the project will be integrated with the third metro line at the stadium station in Nasr City and with the electric train at the City of Arts and Culture station in the Administrative Capital.


The monorail project is being implemented in Egypt for the first time and will represent a great cultural shift in mass transportation, for being fast, modern, safe and environmentally friendly, saving fuel consumption, reducing environmental pollution rates, reducing traffic jams on main axes and streets, and attracting passengers.


The Ministry of Transport has published pictures of the implementation process of a number of monorail stations in the New Administrative Capital, with a length of 56.5 km. The number of monorail stations is 22.
