Ain Sokhna will soon be the home of the first railway tracks factory in Egypt. The new factory is set to start production by the end of 2023, and is expected to not just cover the country’s railway track needs, but export about 50% of its production abroad as well.

The Egyptian government has already been able to secure locally manufactured components for its bridges, including its pillars, which used to be imported from abroad. The Ministry of Transport announced that another factory to manufacture steel blocks is currently under construction, which will enable them to forgo importing them..
