In Egypt, while the population is growing and the economy is growing, consequently there will be more traffic which means there is an urgent need for new infrastructure. Mr Mina told us how Aqua Technology development company how they will build a new railway to connect two cities while:
✔ Reducing the cost of toll road
✔ Saving the time and effort of loading the truck
✔ Reducing transportation and fuel consumption costs
At present, the cheapest way to get from Cairo to El-Alamein is by train and it takes over 5 hours while travelling by road will cut the journey down by half. 240km separates these two cities, but being so hard to reach El-Alamein, althought very popular destination among wealthy Egyptians, has not yet seen the tourist development it deserves. Things will change with the new train line.
