CAIRO: The Sadat metro station near Tahrir Square may re-open in the coming days for transferring metro passengers, Metro police sources told Youm7 Saturday.
The station has been closed to all traffic for 11 months, following the dispersal of the sit-ins at Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda Squares.
The source added to Youm7 that the station would be only for transfers between lines gradually while not allowing the passengers to get out of it.
It’s not the first time for an official to announce that the station would reopen; in April the president of the Egyptian Company for Metro Management and Operations Ali Fadaly announced the station would be reopen in May, however the station has remained closed.
Transfers on the two main metro lines occur at the Shohadaa metro station, which has witnessed continuous congested traffic since the closure of Sadat metro station, as it is the only remaining connection between the first and second line of Cairo’s metro system.
