Construction Begins on Bus Stations Along Cairo's Ring Road
The Ring Road is being developed to turn its four lanes into six lanes for regular traffic, plus a seventh lane reserved for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system.
The Ministry of Transport has started building the first six bus stations for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system around Cairo's Ring Road, as part of the Ring Road's expansion project.
The Ring Road is being developed to turn its four lanes into six lanes for regular traffic, plus a seventh lane reserved for the BRT system. Microbuses will be banned from the Ring Road in order to reduce traffic and help maintain a measure of order within Cairo's public transportation.
The BRT system's vehicles will be composed of all-electric buses that have been manufactured in Volvo's factories in Sweden, and will come with an electronic ticketing system. The upgrades to the Ring Road will also include pedestrian crossings and a new traffic light system.
