Still more metro + railway news: Bombardier is set to begin manufacturing in 1Q2021 the railcars for the two planned monorails that will link Sixth of October City to Giza and Nasr City to the new capital, under a USD 4.5 bn contract signed last year. The manufacturing phase was previously scheduled to begin this year. French public transport operator RATP is bidding for the contract to manage and operate the electric rail line from Salam City to 10th of Ramadan City. Meanwhile, the new electric line connecting Abu Qir Port to West Port Said is expected to cost EUR 6 bn.
