Cairo Metro Line 4 – Phase 1

Cairo Metro Line 4 – Phase 1

The Cairo Metro is the rapid transit system in Greater Cairo, Egypt. It was the first of three full-fledged metro systems built in Africa, as well as the first in the Arab world. It began service in 1987 as Line 1 between Helwan and Ramsis Square, covering a distance of 29 kilometers.

The Cairo Metro currently has 74 stations, 3 of which are transfer stations, with a total length of 89.4 kilometers as of August 2020. There are three operating lines in the system, numbered from 1 to 3.

The new Line 4 will run from Makram Ebeid Station to Police Academy Station near the Ring Road, with bored tunnels following Doctor Hassan El-Sherif Street and Ahmed El-Zomor Street. It will be 24 kilometers long in total. Construction began in Q3 2019 and is expected to be completed in 2024.

Dextra has supplied 450,000 Bartec+ couplers and 42 GFRP soft-eyes for the reinforcement of the diaphragm walls.

Bartec+ is a mechanical splicing system with parallel threads for connecting concrete reinforcement bars with diameters ranging from 12 to 50 mm (ASTM #4 to #18). Its threaded bar end is tensile tested at 90% of the rebar yield strength.

Dextra’s GFRP soft-eye is an integrated turn-key solution that uses cut-able Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) reinforcement as an alternative to traditional steel rebars, allowing the penetration of Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM) to pass through diaphragm walls with ease.
