An estimated 97% of the road work  is completed for the Suez Desert Road project, said Adel Al Turk, Head of the Egyptian General Authority for Roads, Bridges and Land Transport (GARBLT), reported Amwal Al Ghad.

The project includes the 70-kilometer road stretching from the Regional Ring Road up to Suez City, said Al Turk, according to Al Haya Al Masrya.

The Suez Desert Road is considered one of the largest national road projects and involves 120 kilometers of work for EGP 1.5 billion, added Al Turk.

The project is executed by four construction firms, with the Armed Forces Engineering Authority overseeing the implementation.
