Hassan Allam subsidiary wins contract for Fayoum Desert Road
HA Roads and Bridges to work on three road construction projects in addition to a bridge linking Fustat Road and Autostrad Bridge
Egypt’s Hassan Allam Holding, which has been working on projects in sectors including engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC), building materials, and utilities, has secured a number of contracts to develop key road projects.
The Egyptian group said that the contracts, which were awarded to its subsidiary HA Roads and Bridges, includes the development of major roads linking the existing Fayoum Desert Road with the new Central Ring Road.
The project is being implemented as part of the Egyptian government’s strategy to develop the roads in the North African nation, and thereby improve the connections between these roads, the Hassan Allam Holding said in a LinkedIn post.
Under the first project, HA Roads and Bridges will construct a new 55-metre-wide tunnel, with four lanes in each direction, below the Ring Road at the intersection between the Wahat and Ring Roads.
The second project will see the company develop a two-way stretch of the Fayoum Desert Road spanning 14km between its intersection with the Ring Road and Remaya Square.
Meanwhile, as part of the third project, the company will work on the extension of the Ring Road to the Wahat Road by constructing a paved road spanning 6.8km in length.
Additionally, HA Roads and Bridges have also been constructing a bridge linking the Fustat Road and Autostrad Bridge to develop the area around the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation. Touted as one of the largest museums in Egypt, the museum was constructed by Hassan Allam Construction in Cairo district of Ain Al Sira.
Upon completion the 2.2km-long bridge will comprise three lanes in each direction with exits to the Autostrad, Khayala, Basateen Road, and Salah Salem.
