Archplan – Cairo’s leading multidisciplinary engineering firm has a diverse development portfolio spanning 35 years of industry experience. Their projects have attracted worldwide attention for their meticulous design, design logic, function, and overall appeal. Their major development project that commenced last year, for the Adly Mansour Transportation Hub has recently seen the firm win the award for Best Luxury Public Services Architecture at the Luxury Lifestyle Awards.
This project aims to be one of the most extraordinary civil landmarks, as being the first intermodal transportation hub in Egypt. The National Authority of Tunnels is moving forward in the design and construction activities of the very first intermodal transportation hub where rail, cars, busses, and mini-buses are all integrated into one area. This mixed-use public transport station represents a rapidly evolving and developing conception, designed to provide a nucleus for combining and connecting a variety of intercity, regional, and local public transport systems, all within a single facility.
These transportation modals include:
– Intercity motor coach
– Intercity passenger rail
– Regional bus and passenger rail
– Local bus, rail transit, and other local-area modes
– Access to shuttle vans and taxis (and often, park & ride facilities for personal motor vehicles)
The entire scope of this pioneering development project offers five specified zones which include:
- Zone 1: Intermodal Station
- Zone 2: Investment Area
- Zone 3: Train Station
- Zone 4: Superjet Station
- Zone 5: BRT Stop Station
