The results to the right were revised
four years later(so 2007 instead of 2003)
and include only the red maglev and
the one spur to Aqaba (easternmost
crossing of Sinai Peninsula) that
continues to Mecca. While we preferred
the maglev just west of the Nile, any
one of the four north-south links from
the various Sudans we thought might
form would be very beneficial to Egypt.
