There, it will branch into two parts. One will head North alongside the regional ring road, serving the 10th of Ramadan City, and the other will head south from Al Rubiki station to the New Capital. In the second phase, the line is planned to extend to the Sports City at the intersection of Ain Sukhna road with the regional ring road, making the line’s length 93km. The project would ease local transport pressure and help promote Belt and Road Initiative.
