On Sunday, Egypt's Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb has announced the launch of a new 90-kilometre road to the Farafra Oasis in the southern New Valley governorate.
The road, which is part of the National Roads Project, would link the Farafra Oasis to the Ain Dala region and the Siwa Oasis. The project is being executed by the General Authority for Roads and Bridges, the defence ministry, the housing ministry and the transportation ministry. It consists of the construction of 40 roads, comprising 15 roads as a first phase; 4000 kilometres long at the cost of 38 billion Egyptian pounds.
At present, Egyptian authorities are working on a new border demarcation plan which would include the introduction of a new governorate combining the Western Sahara oases of Farafra and Bahariya.
