Cairo: Alstom has signed a 15million contract with the Egyptian National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) for the provision of a signalling system on a new maintenance depot on the Cairo metro Line 1. The system will be delivered in 2017.

The contract forms part of NAT’s programme of upgrades to metro Line 1. The line was constructed in 1989 and is the key line of the Greater Cairo underground metro network, carrying two million passengers every day.

Alstom will deliver the computer-based interlocking system, ensuring the safety of the trains moving within the depot. They will also deliver SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) for traffic and traction, and telecommunications equipment that will supply fire detection, sound equipment, phone and CCTV services.
