Egypt’s 2 main highways closed due to heavy fog: traffic authority

Cairo-Alexandria and Qattameya-Ain Sokhna roads- two of Egypt’s major highways- were closed Monday morning due to heavy fog.

Egypt’s Meteorological Authority has warned of a wave of heavy fog this week, which could impair drivers’ vision during early morning hours.

The closed roads are set to be reopened after the fog lifts.

The traffic authority has increased the number of traffic police on roads affected by fog this week to facilitate safe commutes.

Egypt has experienced multiple waves of dense morning fog since last month, affecting traffic on Cairo’s main entry roads.
