The National Authority for Tunnels will receive from China the first trains that will operate on the al-Salam/New Administrative Capital/Tenth of Ramadan City electric train project at the end of July.
The 22 trains that will operate on the line are arriving in conjunction with the final stages of the construction process of the project. Phase one and two of operation will begin in October.
The 103-km-long electric train project will be managed by the French RATP company for 15 years.
Per an agreement, the company will not determine ticket prices, provided that the it receives an agreed-upon fee for management and maintenance in monthly payments, not including the value of spare parts required for maintenance.
The electric train project will connect passengers with the Cairo Metro’s third line at the Adly Mansour metro station.
It will also meet the Administrative Capital’s monorail at the Administrative Capital Station 2, and connect with the al-Alamein/Ain Sokhna Express Electric Train, which will intersect the Administrative Capital.
