Four int’l companies withdraw bids to build Giza-Beni Suef rail signal boxes

Four international companies have withdrawn their bids to build signal boxes for the Giza-Beni Suef railway line, Al Shorouk reports, noting only that the companies are Chinese and Spanish. Magdy Saleh, general manager at Intelligent Micro Solutions (IMS), the local agent for one of the Chinese companies, said that their bid was withdrawn when the National Railway Authority refused to extend the tender by three months due to the covid-19 outbreak, despite purchasing a conditions booklet. The report does not note the tender’s original deadline.
