Egyptian Transport Minister Kamel Al-Wazir announced on Sunday that Egypt intends to build railways linking the country to Sudan in the south and Libya in the west.
The announcement is part of the Egyptian government’s efforts to modernize the country’s transportation sector.
The minister said in a press conference in Cairo that “a number of rail transport projects have been identified in which it is possible to cooperate with investors to implement them under the construction and operation system and transfer the project to state ownership,” according to a statement published by the ministry on Facebook.
This includes “the construction of the Aswan-Toshka railway line and its extension to the city of Wadi Halfa in Sudan.”
It also includes “the construction of the Marsa Matrouh-Siwa line and the extension of the Matrouh-Sallum line to the city of Beni Ghazi, Libya.”
