New EGP 1.05 Billion Axis in Aswan to Connect the East and West Sides of the Nile

Joining the ever-growing series of road construction projects across Egypt, a new axis in Aswan - called the ‘Kalabsha’ axis - will connect the East and West sides of the Nile River at the cost of EGP 1 billion (or, to be exact, EGP 1.05 billion).

Joining the ever-growing series of road construction projects across Egypt, a new axis in Aswan - called the ‘Kalabsha’ axis - will connect the East and West sides of the Nile River at the cost of EGP 1 billion (or, to be exact, EGP 1.05 billion).  It will be located 15KM north of the city of Kom Ombo, in the area between Aswa El Maljam bridge and Edfu bridge. Set in such a critical location, it's anticipated to be one of the most important road projects Aswan has seen over the past years.


The axis – which will encompass the establishment of nine bridges and five tunnels - extends along six different villages in Aswan: Kom Ombo’s Fares, Fatira and Al-Silsila, and Nasr El-Nuba’s Dahmit, Daboud and Ambrkap, spanning the distance of 23 kilometres with a width of 21 metres.


The axis will link the western desert with the eastern agricultural road to alleviate traffic in the governorates city centres, and to develop Upper Egypt by facilitating the movement of agricultural goods, industrial parts and tourists around the region.


While an opening date has yet to be set, the Kalabsha axis is expected to serve over 350,000 people a day.
