Cairo governorate to stop issuing new building licenses in some Cairo neighborhoods for six months

The Cairo governorate administration will not be issuing new building licenses in a number of the capital’s major neighborhoods for the next six months, Governor Atef Abd El Hamid tells Al Borsa. The move, which will affect planned projects in Maadi, Heliopolis, Nasr City, Hadayek El Qobba, West Cairo, and Al Nozha, is meant to curb traffic congestions and the interruption of services like water and electricity. Utility companies are expected to spend the six-month hiatus coming up with a plan that would limit the effect of construction and expansion works on the city’s roads and services.
