CAIRO – 5 January 2018: Ministry of Transportation has completed two roads as a part of the national project for roads that will be inaugurated by President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi next week.

Furthermore, 11 bridges and tunnels have been completed nationwide. They, along with the two roads, will be inaugurated next week by President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
A technical committee from the presidency is reviewing the projects that will be added to the upcoming inauguration.
In late December 2017, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi inaugurated major national projects in the cities of the Suez Canal. The inauguration was attended by senior state officials, public figures, youth and representatives from all state institutions.
The inauguration event witnessed Sisi giving the green light for several projects to start operating, including the tunnel of Ismailia; two floating bridges built on the Suez Canal and El Qantara, respectively; the second stage of aquaculture projects in the east of the Suez Canal; and the Offshore Support Vessel.
During the inauguration, President Sisi announced that Egypt will build a new city in North Sinai’s Bir al-Abd within two years at a cost of LE 100 billion ($5.6 billion), conveying the idea that Egypt, and especially Sinai, will see significant development during the next few years.
The projects are expected to draw in investments and better the economy after a rough economic transition.
