It connects the Ring Road, the new Suez Road, the old Suez Road, the Muhammed Naguib Corridor, and Al-Rehab City, and serves the areas of New Cairo. It is also very close to Cairo Airport, and thus it serves domestic and international passenger traffic. ”

The engineer said, that the survey work began in the region in coordination with most of the facilities, and the President of the Republic responded to him: “I felt that the axes that were brought to me by the buses wanted to be reformulated, they would wear them well, so that they would not remain 3 lanes, whether for the buses that move or for the people coming.”
The engineer added: “To reduce the burdens on citizens and the loads on the main axes, longitudinal and transverse roads have been established in the Eighth District area, and to solve the problem of traffic congestion on the highway road, two traffic solutions have been worked and studied, the first of which is the development and expansion of Hafez Ramadan Street, from its inception through Hassan Mamoun Street and Ahmed Street. Fakhri Street and ending at Makram Ebeid Street, with a length of 2 km and a width of 6 traffic lanes in each direction, and a bridge is also implemented on the Autostrad Road to solve the intersections between Autostrad Street, Ahmed Fakhry Street, Autostrad Road and Hassan Al-Mamoun Street, and a bridge of 1.1 km long and 3 traffic lanes in each direction in addition to To 2 ramp a service, the first serves the one coming from the highway and heading to Hassan al-Mamoun Street. Ascending serves the next from Hassan al-Mamoun Street and heading to the Autostrad Street, and the bridge will end during the month of April.
President El-Sisi replied: “Before Ramadan.”
President El-Sisi added: “We know that there is a very large overcrowding in this area, and therefore the movement was little, but the axes were expanded so that people could move easily, and what matters to me is that if I had 100 thousand apartments in which half a million people live, for example … by what we did this.” It means that we have completely improved their lives in terms of movement and speed of moving from one place to another .. In general, any need in the region, as long as we are present, we will not get out of it except when we get rid of it completely. ”
