Colas has signed a consortium contract to build the second phase of Line 3 on the Cairo, Egypt Metro

Two years after winning the contract for the first phase of Line 3 on the Cairo, Egypt Metro project, Colas Rail, the Colas Group railway specialist, has just signed on to build the second phase of this new subway line, in a consortium with Alstom Transport and Thalès Transportation Systems and in association with Arab Contractors and Orascom.

The entire project includes 7 km of rail line in a tunnel and 4 underground stations; Colas Rail’s consortium will be in charge of fitting the section with electromechanical equipment and energy.   Colas Rail’s share of the contract value totals 33 million euros.    The work is slated to be performed over a 4-year period.   Colas Rail had already helped build Lines 1 and 2 of the Cairo Metro between 1981 and 2005.
