A source at the Ministry of Transport told Al Shorouk newspaper Sunday that the ministry mulls presenting the model of the high-speed electric trains to be introduced in Egypt for the first time ever.
It will stretch between Giza's 6th of October City and Giza's Abou Simbel on a distance of 1,400 kilometers.
The Ministry of Transport will soon hand over 40 kilometers of the High-Speed Electric Train railways to Siemens.
The minister further noted that the train will reach Abou Simbel.
In that context, the ministry revealed that the technical works contracts of the second and third lines will be signed with Siemens soon.
Egyptian Ministry of Transport is heading to sign a contract with Siemens company to implement the second high-speed train line in the country.
The high-speed electrified main rail line being established in Egypt will cut travelling times and “will make rail the most effective choice of travel,” CNN quoted Siemens Mobility’s CEO Michael Peter as saying.
The train is one of four LRT trains within a high-speed electric train project having a total of 22 trains.
There are four of them.
Egypt has set a number of green projects to accomplish within its Vision 2030.
The lengths of the first and second phases are 460 kilometers and 200 kilometers, respectively.
The pilot operation of the line extending over 90 kilometers will begin in August 2021.
A hot wave announced this week to continue on Saturday, with temperature in Cairo hitting highs of 32 °C on Saturday, according to a statement by the Egyptian Meteorological Authority.
