Establishment of 1st Egypt-Sudan Railway Line: Minister

Minister of Transport Kamel El Wazir said Egypt is building a 6,000-kilometer rail line, connecting Upper Egypt with Sudan, as part of the efforts to facilitate trading between the two countries, Russia Today reports.

The railway will link Abu Simbel to the Sudanese town of Abu Hamad, El Wazir added on the sidelines of Akhbar Al Youm Economic Conference, held from November 2 to 3.

In early 2018, Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia had agreed to establish railway and road networks to link the three nations and establish a joint financial fund to support such infrastructure developments, Middle East Monitor quoted Khartoum’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour as saying.

In May, El Wazir inspected the commencement of the civil works of Egypt’s first monorail project, linking between Greater Cairo and the New Administrative Capital (NAC), which is set to be implemented over 24 months.
