Three additional companies to participate in building Alamein-Ain Sokhna high-speed rail

Arab Contractors, Orascom Construction and Concord for Engineering and Contracting are now part of the consortium of companies contracted to build the high-speed electric rail from Ain Sokhna to Alamein, Al Mal reports, citing unnamed sources. The Transport Ministry had originally selected a consortium of China Railway Engineering Corporation, China Railway Construction Corporation Limited, the Arab Organization for Industrialization, and Samcrete for the project, but decided to increase the number of firms working on the project to speed up construction, sources said. The initial phase of the project will connect the new administrative capital and Borg Al Arab in Alexandria.
