Ägypten errichtet eine neue Hauptstadt

January 6, 2020 - Ägyptens neue Administrative Hauptstadt wird in der Wüste, in 35km östlicher Entfernung von der derzeitigen Hauptstadt, aus dem Boden gestampft. Sie wird sich über 700 Quadratkilometer erstrecken und das derzeitige extreme Verkehrsaufkommen in Kairo reduzieren.

The project, launched in 2015 by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, aims to offer a clean and efficient base for the government and finance industry, as well as homes for at least 6.5 million people, Reuters said.

The first phase, covering about 168 square km, will have ministries, residential neighbourhoods, a diplomatic quarter and a financial district. A large mosque and cathedral, as well a hotel and conference centre, have already been built.

The Egyptian government plans to start running the country from the new capital from mid-2020.
