CAIRO – 15 May 2022: Egypt will celebrate the inauguration of the first phase of Ahl Masr Walkway, a way for the pedestrians along Nile Corniche, and aims at removing encroachments on the river from Cairo to Aswan of Upper Egypt, on Friday.
The first phase of the walkway extends from Imbaba Bridge, Giza governorate, to May 15 Bridge, Cairo, with a length of 1.8 km.
In January 2020, Madbouli said that a pier and an open-air theater would be constructed as part of the project meant to develop the course of the Nile River from Aswan until Cairo, noting that the project also aims to increase greenery and tourist sites in Cairo to be similar to international cities overlooking waterways.
The 4.7-kilometer walkway will be established on two levels; the upper walk and the lower one. The project would include 19 buildings that include five restaurants, five cafeterias, and 62 commercial shops. Three garages would be established to have 180 cars.
