The fourth line of Cairo metro will be extended from al-Rehab City to Madinaty to the New Administrative Capital, Minister of Transport, Kamel al-Wazir, said.
Wazir added, in a Tuesday press conference at the headquarters of the Ministry of Transport in the government district in the New Administrative Capital, that the plan for transportation provided to employees to and from the administrative capital will be reviewed so that the third line of the metro connects with the first and second lines.
The Japan International Cooperation Agency approved a loan amounting to US$306 million to finance part of fourth line of the Cairo metro.
The money will be used to build the first phase of Line Four.
Japanese systems and trains will also be used as part of the 40-year official development assistance loan.
The line is scheduled to open by February 2028, and tenders for initial construction and consultations have already been issued.
In November 2020, it was announced that Orascom and Mitsubishi signed an $800 million contract with the Egyptian National Authority for Tunnels to work on the first phase.
