Road accidents up, railway accidents down in 1H 2019 -Capmas

The good news: Our railways are becoming safer. The bad news: Our roads are becoming less so. Road accidents increased in Egypt 17.9% in 1H2019 compared to 1H2018, according to Capmas findings (pdf). Road accidents reportedly 5,220 in the first six months of the year, causing 1,567 casualties and 6,046 injuries. Railway accidents, however, apparently saw a 14.7% decrease y-o-y, with more than half of these accidents being in the Delta region, the report said.
