Gov’t issues int’l tender for 534 km electric railway line from Ain Sokhna to Al Alamein: The ministries of housing and transport have issued on Thursday a tender to build, operate and maintain a 534 km railway line linking Ain Sokhna with Al Alamein, Al Borsa reports. The railway will pass through the new administrative capital and 6 October City. The winning company will be expected to finance the project, with government-backed loans being the ideal situation, said Housing Minister Mostafa Madbouly. Bidding companies are expected to have completed projects worth EUR 5 bn, he added. This is the second major international transport tender in as many days, after the tender for the 6 October-Giza and Nasry City-new capital monorails was issued one day prior.
