Longest Driverless monorail in Cairo designed by Sener
A venture between Orascom and Arab Contractors have chosen Sener to design the upcoming Cairo monorail network. 
Featuring 96 kilometres of elevated track, 35 stations and 2 depots, it is set to be the longest driverless monorail network in the world as well as the second longest overall. 
The project consists of two lines which will link new urban areas in the east to the west of the city. The 'New Capital' line is expected to be completed by the end of 2024 while the other line is due to be completed in 2025. 
The monorail is planned to run on 70 4 -car driverless trains manufactured by Alstom, providing a capacity of 45,000 passengers per hour per direction with a maximum speed of 90kmph. 
Medhat Elguindy, director of Sener in Egypt, said: “We are glad to combine our global trajectory in mobility and the experience in other notable projects in Egypt to provide Cairo with a mass transportation system aligned with the Egypt Vision 2030 strategy, contributing to foster the urban and economic development of the capital.' 
With a total length of 96 kilometers and 35 stations, it will be the longest automated monorail network in the world (Sener)
