Hassan Allam Partakes in Egypt’s First High-Speed Train Project

Hassan Allam Holding (HAH) announces it has been awarded by the Ministry of Transportation (MOT) the construction work of two stations and four bridges for the high-speed train project, Invest-Gate reports.

This step comes in line with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s initiative to enhance mass transportation infrastructure. The total estimated cost of HAH’s scope amounts to USD 220 mn.

Hassan Allam Construction will build the Alamein station and Wadi El Natroun station, while Hassan Allam Roads and Bridges will build four bridges in the same project, these will consist of two road bridges and two rail bridges.

The first road bridge will extend over 195 m and 70 m in width on the regional ring road, the second is located on the Quarry Road and will have a length of 520 m and a width of 30 m.

As for the rail bridges, the first will stretch over 1,000 m with a width of 13.3 m, while the second will be designated for the high-speed train on the 6th of October City and will extend over 3,000 m with a width of 13.3 m.

“The high-speed train is one of the most important national projects that the Egyptian government has announced. The new railway project will provide easy and convenient mass transportation for all citizens – something that Hassan Allam Holding is always keen on being part of,” Hassan Allam, CEO of Hassan Allam Holding, comments.

The high-speed train project will serve as a new Suez Canal, linking the New Administrative Capital (NAC) and the new cities with a fast railway network.

The line will serve residents of New Cairo, the 6th of October, El Alamein, Borg El Arab, and Alexandria, and provide them with a fast and reliable railway network. The project also contributes to the development of the East coast on the Red Sea and accelerates the speed of development in the Suez Canal Economic Zone.

Moreover, it also serves the development of the Wadi al-Natrun axis, the Dabaa axis, and the northwestern coast, as well as the transport of goods from the port of Ain Sokhna on the Red Sea to Alexandria on the Mediterranean.
