Egypt - Cairo Airport Development Project (English)

Ratings for the Cairo Airport Development Project for Egypt is rated substantial. Notwithstanding the prioritization of other sectors in current World Bank assistance to the GoE, air transport and tourism are identified as priority areas in the GoE’s development plan and strategy. Some lessons learned included: there needs to be a greater emphasis placed on completing preparatory studies and site surveys during the early stages of a project. It is recommended that site surveys be undertaken and integrated into the design development before the contract goes to tender or else considerable risk is added to the project in terms of costs and delays in construction. The DC needs to be cognizant of applicable construction codes and structural conditions while developing the design. The firm appointed by the client to undertake the design and quality assurance may not be suitable to manage the overall project. The separation of the roles on this project and the selection of a new Engineer brought better accountability, project control, and management. When the roles are kept separate, it is expected that the DC will be accountable to the Engineer, who is in charge of managing the project on behalf of the client. In cases such as this when the client has weak capacity, an Engineer can fulfill an important advisory role for the client. To ensure better compliance with HSE aspects, responsibilities and consequences of HSE violations need to be clearly defined in the tender and contract documents. More comprehensive evaluation of airport service levels requires consideration of both quantitative and qualitative indicators in the Results Framework. The World Bank and implementing agencies should work together to address issues that may compromise the quality, safety and security, or the technical, fiduciary, social, or environmental soundness of an infrastructure investment.
