Egypt to launch Alexandria metro tender in 1Q2020

The Alexandria governorate will launch an international tender in 1Q2020 for building an underground metro in Alexandria, Governor Abdel Aziz Konsowa said, according to the local press. The EGP 17 bn first phase of the project will link Abu Qir in the east to the mid-western Mahatet Masr in Attarin, and take up to two years to complete. The second and third phases will then extend westward to El Max and Km 21 on the Alexandria-Matrouh road. All technical and financial studies of the project, which will see the governorate partner up with the Transport Ministry, were recently completed, Konsowa said. Construction was set to begin later this year, but it appears to have been postponed.
