Mubarak Opens Luxor Development Project

President Hosni Mubarak will inaugurate a project to refurbish the ram road in the ancient Upper Egyptian archeological city of Luxor in March, a project that should turn the city into an open outdoor museum.

Luxor Governor Samir Farag made the statements during a meeting he with Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif.

Farag posted Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif on a plan to install surveillance cameras across Luxor to help protect the city. It will be the first electronically-secured city in Egypt, Farag said, noting that the project will be completed within a year.

The governor also reviewed a blueprint to turn Luxor into an environment-friendly city, replacing benzine and diesel oil with natural gas. This also includes a program to turn to solar energy in the city.

Farag said that Luxor will attract more tourists as an environment-friendly city, especially amid growing international awareness of the ecosystem.

Projects to upgrade the Luxor walkway, the Luxor Temple, the Karnak Temple and the Rams Road were also probed.

Slowly but surely, Luxor is gaining a position on the map of international sports and cultural events.

cool stuff

hey guys... found some more good news, it's in arabic.. this is when you wish you concentrated that extra bit more in arabic class

Quote:
بعد 3 تأجيلات منذ سبتمبر الماضي وحتي الآن أكد اللواء محسن النعماني محافظ سوهاج أن افتتاح طريق سوهاج البحر الأحمر والمطار في نهاية شهر يناير الحالي.

وأضاف أنه تنفيذاً للبرنامج الانتخابي للرئيس مبارك والسياسات التي يتبناها الحزب الوطني واهتمام الدولة بتنمية جنوب الوادي وربطه بالشمال وتحقيق نهضة سياحية وعمرانية وزراعية قامت الدولة بإنشاء طريق الصعيد - البحر الأحمر لربط محافظات أسيوط وسوهاج وقنا بمحافظة البحر الأحمر.

وقال المحافظ إنه يعد أول محور تنموي عرضي يخترق الهضبة الشرقية بهدف تحقيق تنمية شاملة لمحافظات الصعيد وربط المناطق الصناعية المختلفة بميناء سفاجا.

وذكر "النعماني" أن وزارة الاستثمار أعدت خريطة ا ستثمارية للأراضي تشمل 54 ألف فدان للاستصلاح الزراعي ومنطقتين للتنمية الصناعية علي مساحة 11 ألفاً و280 فداناً ومنطقتين للخدمات الإقليمية والسياحية علي مساحة 6857 فداناً ومساحات أخري علي جانبي الطريق بعرض 150م بمساحة إجمالية 27 ألف فدان تستخدم في مشروعات التنمية الاستثمارية و11 تجمعا عمرانيا علي مساحة 2 مليون متر مربع لإقامة مشروعات عمرانية جديدة حول الطريق.

بالإضافة إلي 3 موانئ جافة علي مساحة 750 فداناً ومجمع صناعي زراعي علي مساحة 100 فدان وآخر للصناعات التعدينية علي 250 فدان.

وأكد أن شركة الصعيد البحر الأحمر للاستثمار والتنمية التي تأسست برأسمال 200 مليون جنيه وتقوم حالياً بإعداد دراسات الجدوي الاقتصادية والهندسية للاستغلال الأمثل لجميع الأراضي الواقعة علي جانبي الطريق بنظام المشاركة مع القطاع الخاص.

مشيراً إلي أن معهد الدراسات الصحراوية يقوم أيضاً باستكمال دراسات حول المنفد المائي بوادي قنا في المساحات الواقعة بين وادي قنا وسوهاج لاستكشاف المناطق الصالحة للزراعة وتشير الدراسات الأولية إلي وجود آلاف الأفدنة القابلة للاستصلاح والتي تصل إلي 250 ألف فدان بالإضافة إلي وجود مياه جوفية تكفي لزراعتها.

وأشار المحافظ إلي أنه جار استكمال المرحلة الثانية من الدراسات بالتعاون مع وزارتي الري والزراعة لتحديد معدلات الملوحة في المياه والأراضي حتي يمكن تحديد أنسب التركيبات المحصولية لهذه المناطق وأوضح أن المحافظة تلقت 32 ألف طلب من أبناء سوهاج والمستثمرين للاستثمار في الأراضي الواقعة علي جانبي الطريق ووعد الدكتور محمود محيي الدين وزير الاستثمار بأن تكون الأولوية لأبناء سوهاج في إقامة المشروعات.

وأضاف أن إجمالي طول الطريق 412 كيلو مترا وتبلغ التكلفة الإنشائية للمرحلة الأولي ملياراً و600 مليون جنيه تتحمل وزارة الاستثمار فيها 640 مليون جنيه ويتم استكمال التمويل المتبقي من الاستغلال الاستثماري للأراضي حول الطريق.

كان العمل قد بدأ في الطريق مع أول يوليو 2007 بطريق مفرد بعرض 12 متراً وسيتم إزدواجه في المرحلة الثانية وقد بلغت نسبة التنفيذ أكثر من 95% وبدأت وزارة النقل تتسلم الطريق وتقوم بوضع الإرشادات والعلامات المطلوبة واستكمال عمليات الرصف الأخيرة.

These buses operate up and down the Corniche, and Drifter its not short, the Corniche is pretty long, its a great, useful service.

I read somewhere that they plan to expand the bus routes though, to cover more of Alexandria.

Technically speaking, the double-deck buses are better in relieving congestion because they talk half the space of the long segregated type buses.
I still like the long ones though, but I think the double-deck buses are unique.

anyone heard of this??
Quote:
The Saudi-Egypt Causeway is a proposal to link Egypt and Saudi Arabia with a causeway and bridge. [1]. The whole connection - causeway and bridge is expected to cost about $4b and could be completed by 2012. The causeway would link Tabuk to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh on the Sinai Peninsula and would pass through Tiran Island at the entrance of the Gulf of Aqaba.
source wiki.

edit: more info

Tenders for $4bn Saudi-Egypt causeway this year
Quote:
Bids for the causeway which will link Saudi Arabia to Egypt are expected to be invited by the end of this year.

The 21km causeway will be implemented as a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) contract and is estimated to be worth around US $4 billion (SR15 billion).

The project that was announced last year was later dismissed by the Egyptian government, but was again flagged up at Meed's Arabian Construction Summit in Abu Dhabi last month.

The causeway will link Ras Humaid in the northern Saudi region of Tabuk to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh and will pass through Tiran Island at the entrance of the Gulf of Aqaba.

Speaking at the conference, Mohamed Ali, regional director, Cowi said that the project was still under discussion with the governments of Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

A source close to the Qatar-Bahrain causeway also said that this project was definitely going to go ahead, although a few ‘issues' surrounding the contract had to be ironed out before work on the project could begin.

The source said: "It could be another two years before bids for the main construction contract are invited for this causeway, which could cost anywhere between $8 billion to $13 billion. We've only just finished the concept design."

Qatar is on an accelerated drive to build bridges and causeways with neighbouring GCC states including Bahrain and maybe even the UAE, in order to become more accessible by road to these countries.

That would be such a great project! .... I like how they used the Dubai Metro in the render :

EDIT:

No wait.... that render looks very familiar...This is the proposed bridge in Dubai and not the actual Egypt-Saudi bridge!!

Tackling Traffic


In an attempt to ease congestion in one of Greater Cairo’s most infamous gridlocks, Giza traffic officials took steps to reorganize traffic patterns in Mohandiseen. On January 10, the traffic authority changed the direction of the flow of cars on major streets feeding into and off Gameat El-Dowal El-Arabia and Batal Ahmed Abdel Aziz streets. To minimize confusion, officials erected some 285 new traffic signs on the affected streets four days before the switch. A map with the new street directions was also distributed to drivers in the area. Police observed a two-week grace period for drivers to get used to the new traffic patterns, issuing warnings rather than tickets. The grace period ended on February 1.

Among the changes, Thawra Street switched from a two-way to a one-way street in the direction of Batal Ahmed Abdel Aziz. Abdel Hamid Lofty and Abdel Moneim Ryad streets were made one-way streets in the direction of Soliman Abaza Street. (LH)

القاهرة : قررت محافظة القاهرة تحويل وسط المدينة إلى منطقة للمشاة فقط بعد الانتهاء من بناء جراج التحرير فى غضون عام ونصف العام من الآن، مع تحصيل رسوم إضافية فى حالة رغبة السائق الدخول بسيارته.

وقال محافظ القاهرة عبدالعظيم وزير :" إنه سيتم توفير عدد من السيارات، التى تعمل بالكهرباء لنقل الركاب من مقر الجراج إلى شوارع مركز العاصمة، وأن لجنة الطرق بالمحافظة درست المنطقة ووضعت توصيات بتوسعة الأرصفة بمختلف الشوارع الرئيسية ".

جاءت تصريحات وزير خلال مناقشته لرسالة الدكتوراة المقدمة من المهندس أحمد خالد بكلية الفنون الجميلة، لدراسة وسط القاهرة ووضع مخطط جديد لها، مساء الأحد .

ونقلت جريدة "الشروق" المصرية عن وزير قوله :" إن وسط القاهرة يحتاج إلى تكثيف الدراسات النظرية لإعادة تخطيطه دون النظر إلى الواقع الحالى له لأنه إذا تعاملنا مع الواقع سنجد ما لا يسرنا "، لافتا إلى العديد من المشكلات، التى تعانى منها منطقة وسط العاصمة بداية من استعمالات الأراضى وتداخل الأنشطة التجارية والترفيهية والسكنية فى مكان واحد.

وأشار المحافظ إلى أن حريق عمارة رمسيس كشف عن أن أغلب العمارات التاريخية مؤجرة كمخازن وورش.

وأضاف وزير أن المحافظة تفكر الآن فى إعادة الأوبرا إلى مقرها القديم قرب العتبة، قائلا: "أى إنسان بيحس باكتئاب نفسى لما يمشى فى هذه المنطقة" ، لذلك شددت الدراسات على ضرورة عودة الأوبرا إلى مكانها القديم.

وأكد وزير أن المحافظة تصر على بقاء التراث التاريخى والمعالم الأساسية لوسط العاصمة، ومنها مبنى فندق الإنتركونتيننتال، لافتا إلى أن القضاء المصرى أصدر قرارا بترميم الطوابق العليا دون الإزالة، مشيرا إلى قيمته التاريخية حيث شهد الكثير من الأحداث واللقاءات السياسية المهمة.

It's a good thing don't worry. basically they want central Cairo to be Green Area! and let me tell you this all the developed cities city centres are green and there is wayyyyy less car there it's only public transport allowed there. it's a good thing and part of this huge project to make central Cairo green and solve the transport problem there is a project we have in this forum called Ramses Park I don't know if you seen it but it's AWESOME!!!

Just to note this whole project is a long term project parts of it will be completed this year, and the when really we going to see a huge before and after progress is in 2023 I think but the whole project will be finished by 2050 just on time when we become OLD and walk with 3 legs so we can relax there

if you want a link to ramses park project let me know it's HUGE and STUNNING!
