Happy start of a new week, everyone! In an effort to make your Sunday morning more bearable, we have dug out some pretty good news: according to The Cairo Post, Sadat Metro Station is set to reopen within the next three weeks which means your trips from Dokki to Maadi just got a whole lot easier.

After almost two years of closure following the sit-ins of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in August 2013 in Tahrir Square, Sadat Metro Station will be re-opening with brushed up security systems and automated gates to detect “potential acts of sabotage," Head of the Egyptian Cooperation for Metro Management and Operation, Ali Fadaly told Al-Ahram on Saturday.

The station was closed for security reasons but the closure of the important traveling hub could apparently no longer be justified. As the only connection between lines, Al-Shoadaa Metro Station has been suffering from unbearable crowds and increasing sexual harassment. With the reopening of Sadat, the 3.5 million expected travelers on the metro each day are expected to be spread out more, easing the commuter density on Al-Shoadaa.
