Today at TRANSMEA, Egis, alongside their JV partner Setec, signed an agreement to conduct studies for the development of the proposed Greater Cairo Metro Line 6. The JV has been mobilizing their best experts since August 2021 alongside the French Ministry of Economy and Finance and the Cairo embassy to determine a FASEP study program for Line 6 of the Greater Cairo Metro. This line, with the length of around 30 km and partly underground, will serve 24 stations, connecting Al-Khosos in the north of the metropolis to the suburb of Maadi in the South East.
The MOU was signed with the National Authority for Tunnels (NAT), and with the attendance of the Egyptian Minister of Transport H.E. Kamel El Wazir and the Chairman of NAT, Dr Essam Wally. This materializes the launch of the Greater Cairo Metro Line 6 Project by the Egyptian government and entrusts Egis with the management of the studies.
Egis, the major international group in the consulting, construction engineering and mobility sectors, has previously been awarded the Coordination, Management, and Construction Supervision Services, of Line 3, Phase 3, of the Greater Cairo Metro in partnership with Systra, ACE and EHAF.
