CAIRO - 8 December 2018: The second phase of Taba protection projects against heavy rain will kick off at the beginning of 2019 at a budget surpassing LE200 million.
The projects include 12 draining channels, four lakes, and barriers to protect tourism establishments bordering Gulf of Aqaba, the gas pipeline, Nuweiba International Road, high-voltage electricity power towers, and security ambushes. They will finish by the end of the next year.
Those works have been designed based on prospects on heavy rains for the next 100 years. The studies were prepared using mathematical methods, and the data of previous decades taking into consideration climate change. The goal is linking all main valleys of Red Sea Mountains together.
