Egypt may extend the high-speed electric train project to Libya

The head of the Egyptian-Libyan Chamber of Commerce Ibrahim Al-Jarari said that Cairo and Tripoli are considering extending the high-speed electric train in Egypt – which will be completed within two years – to Libya.

The railway line extends between Ain Sokhna in the Red Sea and the city of El Alamein on the Mediterranean Sea. The line can be extended to Benghazi, Libya, via the Egyptian city of Sallum.

Al-Jarari explained that his country’s government intends to invest in the project to increase its completion rate. He added that the Libyan committee concerned with the issue would hold meetings with the Egyptian side next week. The meetings also include planning for the Libyan-Egyptian Economic Forum to be held in February.

The businessman added that the Common Railways was among ten agreements.
