Madbouly listened to an explanation from the Minister of Transport about the expansion of the Ring Road through Al-Moneeb and its intersection of the highway.
He noted that the electric train will connect all the new cities to Cairo, representing a qualitative leap for mass transportation in Egypt.
Noteworthy, Egypt signed a contract with the French company RATP Dev to manage, operate, and maintain the electric train during the period of implementation.
