Transport Ministry studying new railway project linking Egypt with Saudi’s Madinah

The Transport Ministry is reportedly studying a new railway project that could link Egypt to Saudi Arabia, according to Egyptian Company for Pipe and Cement Products (Siegwart) Chairman Farouk Hendawy. The 1,254 km line should extend from Suez to Madinah in Saudi, he tells Al Mal, adding that it would require around EGP 2 bn worth of concrete flanks, which his company is already supplying to various Cairo Metro and railway upgrade projects, including the Alamein-Ain Sokhna line.
