  • Tanta – Zifta – Zagazig mainline covers approximately 65 km including nine main stations

8 November 2021 – Alstom and the Egyptian National Railways Authority (ENR) signed a framework agreement to modernise the Tanta – Zifta – Zagazig mainline, covering approximately 65 km including nine main stations during the TransMEA Exhibition & Conference. The project’s scope includes the design, supply, installation of the signalling, power, telecom systems and trackside equipment for migration to ETCSL1. In addition, the contract includes the testing and commissioning of signalling, telecom and power systems, civil works, trenching works and track-works including doubling of the track.

The modernisation of Tanta – Zifta – Zagazig mainline is one of the Ministry of Transport’s top priorities and part of Egypt’s plans to improve public transportation capacity and efficiency. The agreement was signed by Eng. Mostafa El Makarem, CEO of ENR and Andrew Deleone, Alstom AMECA President, in the presence of Eng. Ahmed El Sewedy, President and CEO of Elsewedy Electric and Mohamed Khalil, Alstom Egypt Managing Director. Alstom is currently working on modernising the Beni Suef Asyut line.

“We are pleased to be selected for an additional signalling modernisation project and to do it with Elsewedy Electric. This agreement builds on our long-term partnership with ENR and we remain committed to providing state-of-the-art signalling solutions to Egypt and its citizens.”
