As part of the extension project of line 3 of the Cairo metro in Egypt, the consortium to which Bouygues Travaux Publics belongs with its partners VCGP, ORASCOM and ARABCO has just delivered phase 3A to its client NAT (National Authority of Tunnel), at 12 noon on 5 October.

Cairo residents can now travel on the section between Attaba station and Kit Kat station, which is about 4 kilometres long, underground, with the addition of 4 stations.

The project teams are determined to also deliver the sections of phases 3B and 3C, consisting of 11 underground and overhead stations, tunnels (around 3 km) and viaducts (around 7 km) by next year. 

Did you know?
For over 40 years, Bouygues Travaux Publics has contributed to the development of the largest city in North Africa via the design and construction of the Cairo metro, as part of a Franco-Egyptian consortium. More than 80 kilometres of metro lines are already in service. Lines 1 and 2 linking the north and south of the capital have been finalised, whilst line 3 is still partially under construction. In time, this line will connect the left bank of the Nile and Cairo Airport, running through the city from east to west, and will complete the existing network, serving 5 million passengers per day. In 2015 and 2016, the National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) again placed its trust in the consortium for the construction of phases 4A and 3 of the new line.
