Kuwait’s EMAC Contracting is set to build a 77km-long road in Egypt as part of the first phase of the national road network.

The contractor, which is affiliated to Kuwait’s Al Kharafi & Sons Group, expects to develop the project within a year, its executive manager, Samir Fathy, told Amwal Al Ghad.

The national road network is a mega Egyptian infrastructure project launched by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi back in August 2014.

The project includes the construction of 39 new roadways with a total length of 4,400km.

The first phase includes building another 60km-long Qena-Safaga desert road.

The whole project is projected to be ready within two years at a total cost of $4bn (EGP36bn).

Among the planned roads are the Ismailia-Banha (33km-long), the Sohag-Red Sea (180km-long), and the Wadi al-Natrun-Alamein (134km-long).
