Dextra’s Quarterly Newsletter: Connection #28

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.

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

Cairo Metro Line 4 will be built as a new underground line that will help to alleviate traffic congestion. Phase 1 will run for 19 kilometers and include 16 stops, connecting the heart of Greater Cairo to Giza’s pyramids.

Dextra has supplied turn-key solutions for the reinforcement of the diaphragm walls.

  • 450,000 Bartec+ couplers
  • 42 GFRP soft-eyes

It is projected to be Egypt’s major tourist transportation line, with service up to the Pyramids area beginning in 2024.

GFRP Connector

for insulated precast sandwich panels


Suitable for composite, partially composite and non-composite precast concrete sandwich panels.

Manufactured with optimum bonding with concrete thanks to dual surface deformation and sand coating.

Stronger than steel, therefore fewer number of ties are needed compared to other methods.

Lighter than other connectors and easier to install, leading to higher sandwich panels productivity.

Made of corrosion-resistant material: GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) leading to slimmer panels.
