President Abdel Fattah El Sisi has reviewed a blueprint for the development of Egypt’s northwestern sector from Alexandria to el Salloum city.
During a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli and a raft of ministers in El Alamein city on Tuesday, the president issued directives to increase the number of traffic lanes and service centers along the roads of the country’s northwestern sector to serve citizens and accommodate the expected traffic flow in this area, which witnesses various development projects.
The blueprint includes establishing several urban, agricultural, industrial and tourist communities through setting up a number of giant projects, which are linked together via a network of modern roads and state-of-the-art means of transportation, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said.
One of these projects is the “New Delta”, which aims to increase the agricultural area in Egypt by one million feddans in its first stage, the spokesman said.
The projects also include the Dabaa Nuclear Power Plant, Al Alamein International Airport and other tourist resorts extending to Matrouh, the spokesman noted.
According to the spokesman, the president was also briefed on a number of development projects in Alexandria, where he gave directives to remove any violations on the state-owned lands in el Montazah area.
The president listened to a detailed explanation about the lining of the Nubaria canal and other development projects across the nation.
He directed the officials to finalize such development projects on time.
