Prime Minister Mostafa Madouli said Monday President Abdel Fattah El Sisi has directed to speed up the implementation and completion of a project under way to expand and upgrade Cairo's Ring Road.

The premier chaired a meeting to follow up progress in the implementation of the project, underlining the vital role of the ring road in linking between the governorates surrounding Greater Cairo.

The meeting was attended by Transport Minister Kamel El Wazir and the governors of Cairo, Qalyubia and Giza.

Madbouli reviewed the project activities, which involve the expansion and overall maintenance being carried out in parallel with relocating the utilities and facilities standing in the way of the project.

The premier was also briefed on the progress of the measures taken by the bodies concerned in the three governorates to expropriate the lands and property needed for the project.

He was also posted on progress made in removing buildings that obstruct development work at the Ring Road in Greater Cairo.

Madbouli emphasized the importance of Cairo's freeway for facilitating citizens' movement and reducing traffic congestion.
