The contract was signed on August 7, during a meeting between al-Wazir, South Korean ambassador, Mr Yoon Yuechul, and a delegation of Hyundai Rotem headed by vice chairman, Mr Yoon Yeocheol.
The contract follows a Won 150.8bn ($US 124.8m) contract to supply 48 metro trains for Line 2, which Hyundai Rotem was awarded in June. In 2017, Egypt’s National Authority for Tunnels (NAT), a division of the ministry of transport, selected Hyundai Rotem to supply 256 metro cars for the phase three extension of Cairo metro Line 3.
The minister told the delegation there were other upcoming metro investment opportunities, including upgrading the existing Alexandria – Abu Qir branch line to electrified metro, which is due to be tendered internationally.
The delegation also discussed the possibility of cooperating on a number of railway projects such as the construction of the Manashy – 6th of October City line, which would ease freight transport between the Port of Alexandria and the dry port at 6th of October City, and a feasibility study into the Hurghada – Safaga – Qena – Luxor line.
Other proposed projects discussed include track doubling of the Mansoura – Damietta line, resignalling the Tanta – Mansoura – Damietta line to improve safety, increasing rail freight between Damietta Port and the Red Sea as well as the possibility of manufacturing locomotives.
