The Cairo monorail project comprises two new monorail lines. The first one is to connect East Cairo with the New Administrative City. It would be 54km in length. The second line would connect 6th October City and Gizeh. The length of this line would be 42km. Bombardier Transportation says that subject to contract and final confirmation it will deliver the monorail system together with two Egyptian companies: Orascom Construction and Arab Contractors.
