The New Suez Canal Project is moving ahead. Around 17.5 million cubic meters of material have been dug so far.
The digging works were divided into 33 sectors and assigned to specialized civil companies and two road divisions of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority.
The project will boost Egypt’s economy and help speed up the movement of vessels through the 193 km long canal, which connects the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea.
