CAIRO – 23 July 2021: Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El Sisi inspected on Friday the development works at the new axes and roads being implemented in east and west of Alexandria as part of "together to build the future" initiative which is carried out under the supervision of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority.

During the tour, Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli and Assistant Head of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority Ahmed Al-Azazi briefed the President on the 140-km development project, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said in a statement.

Sisi said that new corridors, which are currently being established, should help accommodate traffic movement for the coming 20 years.

He added that he is closely following with all the projects that are being currently implemented all over the country. “If there is something I don’t fully understand, I ask specialists.” Sisi said.

He added that the government aims at “changing the reality of Alexandria.”


It is necessary to transform from a state whose people act without planning, to an organized state that has a clear vision, Sisi said.

It is necessary for the state to control the fish farms, he added.

The Transport Ministry has received more financial allocations over the past years compared to other ministries, Sisi said.

The cost of constructing these roads is very huge, but we will start work now to end the problems of the area, he added.

"Together to build the future" initiative covers the development of axes in east of Alexandria, including the ring road of Abu Qir new city which extends at a length of 16 kilometers to serve the new urban expansion projects in the area, Rady said.

In eastern Alexandria, the development works cover El-Tameer Axis, implemented at a length of 50 kilometers to be of nine lanes in each direction, in addition to four axes being implemented at a length of 14 kilometers to link the coastal road with the new El-Tameer Axis to be of eight lanes in each direction, the spokesman added.
