Egypt to build new urban community in Cairo-Alex road

Egypt’s Cabinet has approved Tuesday to re-allocate a number of the state-run land plots over 31,000 faddans in Cairo-Alexandria desert highway road in order to build a new urban community.

The 31,000 faddans will be allocated in favour of the county’s New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA).

Cairo-Alexandria desert road, which is 220km (136.7 miles) long, begins at Giza in the northwest corner of Cairo’s regional ring road and ends in Alexandria. It links between Cairo and Alexandria, the two largest cities in Egypt.
