Mitsubishi and Kinki Sharyo to deliver Cairo Line 4 fleet

First Talgo train for Egypt due to arrive in November
EGYPT’s National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) has signed a contract worth Yen 40bn ($US 351.2m) with Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) and Kinki Sharyo to deliver 184 cars for the Cairo Metro Line 4 Phase 1.
MC, which is the main contractor, will oversee the project’s schedule and day-to-day operations while Kinki Sharyo will supply the rolling stock in phases between 2025 and 2028.
Line 4, which is being funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) through an Official Development Assistance (ODA) loan, is being built with Japanese railway technologies. MC signed a Yen 90bn contract in November 2020 to deliver the railway systems, track and depot works for phase 1.
The 19km Phase 1, which will have 16 stations, will run from central Cairo to the Giza Pyramid Complex in southwest Greater Cairo. Ongoing urbanisation in the Egyptian capital has resulted in rapid population expansion and traffic growth. Line 4 is expected to help ease Greater Cairo’s traffic congestion, and also has potential as a tourist line connecting central Cairo to the pyramids and the under-construction Grand Egyptian Museum.
