As a result of the cooperation between Assiut University and Egypt’s Academy Of Scientific Research & Technology, the designs of the double-decker trains were produced, and the trains should be installed by the end of the ongoing year.
The main aim of having those trains is to make those that are heading to Upper Egypt less crowded, According to statements from the head of Egypt’s Semaf Railway Factory, Abdel Rahman Hussein, to Al-Watan newspaper; “The project aims to increase passenger load capacity from 40% to 60% on the current trains operating in different railway lines.
The project is a step to ease the congestion of train vehicles, especially heading to Upper Egypt”.
