Hassan Allam Holding (HAH) was awarded the design and construction of Bashteel Railway Station in Giza, west Cairo, under the supervision of Transport Ministry and National Railways Authority of Egypt, Invest-Gate reports.
Upon completion after three years tops, Bashteel Railway Station will be the new main railway hub serving various areas of the North African country, coming as part of HAH’s commitment – along with the government – to upgrade and develop Egypt’s transport network, according to the company’s August 27 announcement on its official LinkedIn account on August 27.
“The vision for Bashteel Railway Station, which consists of a ground floor and two loft areas with 66,500 square meters of administrative offices and 24,000 square meters of shops, is to create a focal station resting in between Ramses and Giza, alleviating the congestion at Ramses Station,” read the statement.
“It will include two main workshops for train maintenance and a number of service facilities such as fuel tanks, railway carriage washing units, and water tanks,” it further stated, adding that the project’s scope will cover 22 kilometers of railway and track works.
Earlier this month, HAH has inked a collaboration protocol with the Arab Organization for Industrialization (AOI), which entails that the former company makes use of the construction equipment manufactured by AOI in implementing national projects granted to the Egypt-based company, according to a previous statement.
