Egypt’s Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation, Mohamed Abdel Aty, met on Tuesday with Ali Menoufy, head of the Egyptian General Survey Authority, to follow up on the most works and activities of the authority, in the fields of surveying and land expropriation.

During the meeting, the minister reviewed the contribution of the authority to the presidential initiative for the development of the Egyptian countryside “A Decent Life” in order to implement the survey work for the sites that are being implemented within the initiative. The authority has so far completed the implementation of nearly 3000 sites in various governorates.

The Survey Authority is currently carrying out survey work for the South Valley Development Project area, for the purpose of creating contour maps with scales (1:5000) and (1:25000), and implementing the survey work for the path of the Future Egypt project (New Delta) with a length of 40 km. 

Additionally, the authority is coordinating with concerned authorities to finalise the surveying works for the new Suez Canal project, the new cities (the Administrative Capital – New Alamein City – Sphinx City), a project to establish a wind power plant in Zafarana, and a nuclear power plant to generate electricity in El-Dabaa.

Moreover, the authority also contributes to the implementation of survey work for many transportation projects, in addition to carrying out the survey work of the urban estate project for cities and villages.

The minister stressed the necessity to take all the required measures to ensure good performance and efficiency of workflow in the survey directorates in various governorates, and to ensure that all work was completed on time.
