Urbalis is an advanced signalling system that helps operators to ease commuter congestion. Constantly upgraded, the solution aids urban operators in maximising their performance and capacity while providing standard supervision and control supporting their operational needs. Designed for heavy ridership metros, the system offers a considerable range of functions that improve headway and average speed performance.

Alstom has been present in Egypt for over 40 years and has contributed to support the strong trend of railway infrastructure development in the country. Over decades, Alstom Egypt has developed a local talent pool that is today in charge of a centre of excellence related to signalling, Power Supply and Depot Equipment which is supporting our projects within the AMECA region. It is this heritage that has allowed Alstom Egypt to make a significant contribution to Egypt’s rail industry development.
