Egypt-based local engineering, construction, and infrastructure company Hassan Allam Holding has secured a design and construction contract for Bashteel Train Station in Giza, located on the west bank of the Nile, near Cairo, in the north African nation.

The building and design works have been awarded under the supervision of the Ministry of Transportation and the National Railways Authority.

The project comes in line with the ministry’s efforts to upgrade and develop the transportation network in Egypt.

According to Hassan Allam, Bashteel Station will be a G + two floors structure also featuring two loft areas with 66,500m2 of administrative offices and 24,000m2 of shops.

The project will be a central station between Ramses and Giza, and help reduce the congestion at Ramses Station.

Upon completion, Bashteel Station will feature two main workshops for train maintenance and a number of service facilities, including fuel tanks, railway carriage washing units, and water tanks.

As part of the project, HAC will complete design and construction of all utility networks, roads, car tunnels, and service tunnels for an area covering 32.4km2.
