Aspired upgrading aims to facilitate citizen movement, save fuel, ensure faster traffic
resident Abdel Fattah El Sisi has called for a gradual expansion of the construction and upgrading of main roads and motorway axes that connect Greater Cairo’s neighbourhoods so as to reduce traffic congestions, ease the burden on citizens, realise larger and faster traffic flow, cut pollution and save fuel.
The president’s directives came during his meeting Monday with Presidential Advisor for Urban Planning Major General Amir Sayed Ahmed, Chairman of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority Ihab el-Far and top government officials, Presidency Spokesman Ambassador Bassam Radi said.
During the meeting, the president called for the optimisation of intensive works now under way along the water paths from the River Nile branches to the Egypt Delta project. The aspired optimisation, President Sisi said, would help remodel these paths into new arteries for development in the surrounding area.
He also followed up on the construction and engineering situation of a number of Armed Forces Engineering Authority’s projects nationwide, especially including the “Delta Egypt” project for agricultural production and the New Administrative Capital with its residential districts and installations.
In the foremost of these installations is Egypt’s International Olympic Games City which will represent a notable sports edifice with integrated components and services, including infrastructure for stadiums and halls in accordance with the highest international standards.
The meeting also featured a review of the progress of works for some construction projects, Spokesman Radi said, adding that the review covered the executive action to provide the up-to-date and giant construction equipment required for the implementation of the national project for upgrading the Egyptian countryside villages. The review, the spokesman said, included model designs for houses of worship and the projected ideal countryside house.
