Egypt’s NRA to tender phase two of EGP 4.7 bn Bashtil central station in January

The National Railways Authority (NRA) plans to issue a tender to construct the second phase of the EGP 4.7 bn central railway station in Giza’s Bashtil in January, NRA head Ashraf Raslan told the local press. The second phase will include a large passenger station, commercial center, administrative buildings and a residential complex, with construction expected to wrap in three years. Separately, the NRA is also planning a similar fully-serviced central station in Qalyub, Al Mal reports, citing an unnamed Transport Ministry source. The projects come as the ministry is working on major transport infrastructure projects, including Egypt’s first major transit hub, the final stop of the Cairo Metro Line 3.
