Bombardier to start making Egypt monorail cars this month

Canada’s Bombardier is planning to begin this month manufacturing rolling stock for the two planned monorails linking Sixth of October City to Giza and Nasr City to the new capital, the company’s Egypt boss, Ahmed El Damanhoury said. Egypt last year signed a 30-year contract with Bombardier, Orascom Construction, and Arab Contractors that will see the consortium construct, operate, and maintain the lines. The companies target completing the new capital monorail by June 2022 and the one running from the Sixth of October by July 2023, El Damanhoury said.
