RIYADH: Egypt began implementing its first high-speed train project from Ain Sokhna on the Red Sea coast to Marsa Matrouh on the Mediterranean coast, with a length of 660km, and a cost of up to $9 billion, Arab News reported.

The Egyptian contracting companies are completing the preparation of the road path on which the high-speed train will run, while the construction of the stations on the track are also going on.

Siemens will implement the project’s signaling and communication systems and supply the trains that will operate on it after its implementation.
