Egypt builds mega project named after Abu Dhabi crown prince
The foundation stone will be laid next month at a mega project in Egypt which is named after Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
Construction of roads and utilities for the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Residential Complex project will be completed within two years, news agency WAM reported.
Accompanied by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, Sheikh Mohammed toured the project, which is 12km long and spreads over about 20,000 acres.
The residential complex connects Cairo city with the new administrative capital project, WAM said.
The new neighbourhood includes financial, business and residential districts, science city, medical global city, and a smart village, in addition to an exhibition centre, entertainment and service centres. It also has several restaurants as well as trails for bicycles and pedestrians.
The project is linked to the new administrative capital through the two bridges at the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed intersection on the regional ring road.
About 50 Egyptian construction companies with a total of 50,000 engineers, technicians and labourers are working at the mega project.
