Minister of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities Assem El Gazzar said that steel beams for the axis bridge at the intersection of El Zomor Canal Axis and Haram Street are installed, Invest-Gate reports

Being implemented by the Central Agency for Reconstruction, affiliated to the ministry, the EGP 5 bn bridge starts from Moneib Ring Road in southern Cairo to Warraq Ring Road in the northern side, with a total length of 12 kilometers and a width ranging from 33 to 65.5 meters, El Gazzar said in a statement on April 21.

He added that the project marks the first axis to link northern Giza with its southern side, as well as several main axes throughout the governorate, according to the ministry’s statement.

Head of the Central Agency for Reconstruction Mahmoud Nassar made it clear that the axis seeks to resolve the issue of traffic congestion in Giza square, 26th of July Axis, and Saft El Laban Axis. 

Transport Minister Kamel El Wazir has revealed in late 2019 that 4,500 out of the total 7,000 kilometers of the under-development National Roads Project have been implemented so far since the program’s inception in 2014, at a total cost of EGP 75 bn.

To accomplish the national plan’s endeavors, another 1,300 kilometers are under construction, with investments worth EGP 25 bn, whereas an additional 1,200 kilometers are planned for the near future, El Wazir announced when addressing a panel at “Egypt Can” conference in October 2019.
