Train services in the south of the country from Cairo to Aswan resumed operations after protestors in the Al-Ayat city in the Giza governorate ended a demonstration that blocked the city's train crossing for more than 11 hours.
The protest in 'Al-Ayat' delayed 51 train commutes between Cairo and Aswan, said Hussein Zakaria, head of Egypt's railway authority in a press statement Saturday.
"The protestors were demanding local authorities build monitored, gated crossing instead of a simple barrier", explained Zakaria.
Egypt has had a weak railway safety record over the course of the past two decades.
A recent train crash in Giza suburb of Badrashin in January left 19 people killed.
More than 20 major train accidents have been recorded since 1992 leaving hundreds dead and injured.
