The Egyptian Ministry of Housing is currently establishing approximately 2,000 social housing units in New Al Alamein City, 700 of which are being finalized, Invest-Gate reports.

“New Al Alamein City is a new model for coastal cities. It contains a number of developmental projects and hosts a mixed-use project that has industrial zones, trade, commercial, scientific research centers and other activities,” says Minister of Housing Mostafa Madbouly.

Madbouly has paid an inspection tour to New Al Alamein City where he has urged the completion of all construction works in the city by the middle of April.

In the city, other upgrade and construction works include the establishment of a new international road between Alexandria and Matrouh spanning an area of 48 kilometers.

Construction works on other roads in the city as well as on the touristic beach pathway are also expected to be finalized in the coming months.

New Al Alamein City spans 48,000 feddans of land and is expected to accommodate 400,000 residents.
