Orascom will complete the civil package in a consortium with Vinci, Bouygues and Arab Contractors.

Work will also be carried out by TSO, which is a part of France’s NGE Group and ETF. Construction will involve 18km of tunnels and viaducts, as well as 15 elevated stations and 30 underground stations.

Orascom won a $180m contract for work on the first phase of the expansion and $140m contract for the second phase of the third metro line in 2007 and 2009, respectively.

Earlier this April, a consortium comprising Egis Rail, ACE, and EHAF was led by Systra and secured a €60m contract with Egypt’s National Authority for Tunnels to provide general consultancy services for phase three of Cairo metro line 3.
