Egypt plans to choose a winning bid in early August of this year from among 15 companies competing to develop an Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) in the country’s new administrative capital.

There are foreign companies among the bidders, Khalil added.

Khalil said in previous statement that among the companies vying to win the bid are Hassan Allam, Orascom Construction, Elsewedy Electric, Etisalat Misr, Telecom Egypt, Giza Systems, Fiber Misr Systems (FMS), MTI, alka-tec GmbH, Alkan, and SIS Telecom.
