Head of the Suez Canal Authority and the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone) Mohab Mamish on Monday 16/10/2017 announced the installing of the western part of a floating bridge in Ismailia governorate.
The bridge is linking between Ismailia city and the island between the old and the new Suez canals.
In a press release, Mamish said the bridge comes within a plan to build five bridges after directives from President Abdel Fattah El Sisi to alleviate the suffering of citizens moving between the eastern and western areas of the Suez Canal as well as linking Sinai peninsula with Egypt’s other governorates.
The bridge is planned to be inaugurated in December, he further said, adding that the authority is currently building the eastern part of the bridge.
