Hill International and HJI Group to manage NAC Monorail project
The National Authority for Tunnels awarded (pdf) a consortium of Hill International and HJI Group Corporation the consultancy services contract for the new monorail lines connecting the new administrative capital and Sixth of October city. The consortium will oversee the implementation of the USD 4.5 bn project — which will extend a 54 km line between Nasr City and the new capital and a 42 km line from 6th of October to Giza — as well as manage and review the design for the monorail lines. US-based Hill International currently manages work on Cairo Metro Line 3, the Grand Egyptian Museum, and Cairo Light Rail. A consortium made up of Bombardier, Orascom Construction, and Arab Contractors signed a 30-year contract for the construction and maintenance of the lines last year.
