Hyundai Rotem to send first batch of air-conditioned metro cars in April

Egypt will begin receiving in April 32 new air-conditioned metro cars in batches from Hyundai Rotem for the Cairo Metro Line 3, Transport Minister Kamel El Wazir said, according to a ministry statement. This is two months earlier than expected: the National Tunnel Authority said last month that the cars would be delivered between June and December 2020 under a EUR 350 mn contract signed in 2017. The expansion of Metro Line 3 is also underway, the statement said. This will add three stops linking the Adly Mansour station to Cairo International Airport at a cost of EGP 1.5 bn.
