A new metro line for Cairo

smallfile_metro3

In Cairo, the largest city in the Arab world and Africa, millions of people go to work everyday or need to pick their way through the city.  Traffic jams and crowded streets is the everyday occurrence, people have to deal with. But how can a mega city like Cairo manage the increasing urban mobilization of its inhabitants?

One of the most efficient ways to avoid the traffic is Cairo’s metro system, but until now only a minor part of the city is connected to the metro system.  That is why the engineers and technicians keep working hard to develop the third metro line. The SciTech film crew met the decision makers and engineers to see the progress of the construction.
