Line 3 of the Cairo metro is under construction. After having equipped in 2016 the NFM tunnel boring machine which dug nearly 3 km on phase 4A (located east of the city), CAP returns to Cairo to start another Herrenknecht tunnel boring machine which must dig nearly 6.6 km for phases 3A and 3C located further west. The NFM tunnel boring machine will be reused next year to build a small additional section of approximately 600m. Once Phase 3 is completed, Line 3 will total 39 stations and a total length of 48 km.
