Rail

Cairo metro, Lines 1, 2 and 3, Egypt

The names of famous ancient Egyptians Nefertari, Hatshepsut and Imhotep were given to the successive tunnel boring machines that have been working below Cairo for 30 years.

The underground works expertise provided by VINCI Construction Grands Projets and Soletanche Bachy was twice called on to tunnel under the Nile. Since 1981, the companies have handed over 77.4 kilometres of metro lines and 64 stations to offer the residents of Cairo an affordable, fast, safe and lasting means of transport.
