The Egyptian Minister of Transport, Kamel al-Wazir, said that a company is being established in cooperation with Mwasalat Misr to manage the system of all smart transportation in the New Administrative Capital.
The minister’s statements came during the regular general assembly of the Arab Union for Land Transport and Tourism (Super Jet). The report on the company’s activity and results for the fiscal year ending on December 31, 2020 was approved during the meeting.
The company’s activity and development plan to meet the challenges imposed by the coronavirus pandemic were reviewed. This is in addition to the company’s current efforts to establish a company in cooperation with Mwasalat Misr to manage the system of all smart transportation in the New Administrative Capital.
The meeting also reviewed Super Jet’s plans to provide smart transportation services in the New Administrative Capital and digital transformation within Egypt’s Vision 2030 program in various fields. The Super Jet plan focused on supporting digital transformation projects, restructuring assets and operational costs.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday directed the government to start the actual relocation to the government district in the New Administrative Capital, starting in December.
Between 50,000 and 60,000 employees will be transferred to the New Administrative Capital, including employees at 33 ministries, according to government reports.
Madbouly said earlier this year that during the last quarter of 2021, work groups will start moving from different ministries to government buildings to begin the trial operation of government buildings in preparation for the official relocation to the capital.
The first phase of the New Administrative Capital is being built on an area of 40,000 acres, and includes eight residential neighborhoods accommodating 2.5 million people. There is also a central business district, a government district, the House of Representatives and some national and international schools and universities.
The first phase also include a Sports City, the City of Knowledge, the City of Culture and Art and the Green River that cuts through the heart of the capital with a length of 11km of open parks, restaurants and parks.
