A master plan for a new city on 22,500 feddans in El Tur Governorate is being developed, Madbouly said in a press release Thursday, noting that its coastal area will be fully prepared for tourism purposes.
Moreover, Madbouly stated that the master plan is to be developed in tandem with the General Organization for Urban Planning and the General Authority for Tourism Development, adding that the New Urban Communities Authority will be responsible for building the city's infrastructure.
He promised that the city will be a full-fledged new urban community that provides its residents with quality facilities and services.
Once it is finalized and before its implementation, the master plan will be submitted to the cabinet and the president for approval, the housing minister confirmed.
