The implementation of Line No. 3 started with the Attaba to Abbasia section, the first phase, followed by the second phase from Abbasia to Heliopolis.
A workshop serving the new Metro line was designed by BECT with modern standards and techniques to satisfy essential speed, maintenance plan and transportation capacity of the project. The design is taking into consideration the safe crossing of maintenance lines near Abbasia station.
Architectural and Structural Design for 12 Industrial buildings and Workshops were carried out by BECT consultants to facilitate the maintenance operation of the third line of metro.
