METAV, a consortium led by Egis in partnership with Gadish Group, has been awarded the Tel Aviv Metro network management contract by Metropolitan Mass Transit Systems (NTA).

The 150km underground metro will have three lines, 109 stations (all underground), four depots and it’s expected that €40bn will be invested in the project.

During the first 18 months, Metav will assist NTA in the development and formalisation of the project’s overall strategy related to planning, scope of work and procurement. Once that is complete, the consortium will be in charge of the management and implementation of the project until its commercial operation.
