Launched the green river construction project in the new administrative capital.
The 35 km long river purposes to act as a connector between the modern and diverse urban neighborhoods. The initial phase will be of about the first 10 kilometers, extending from the central ring road to the regional ring with 9 billion pounds estimated investment. It will be conducted by the housing ministry.
The first phase is worth $500 million (equivalent to LE 9 billion).
The company will sell the lands on the prospective river banks to the ministry so it would invest them, and raise funds necessary to finance the project.
The Green River will stretch from Cairo Ring Road to the Regional Ring Road passing through the Central Business Park.
On its banks, there will be a botanical garden, and a park having the Islamic architecture.
All the 20 neighborhoods in the new capital will be linked to the Green River.
