Project Description

The spinal road was designed to act as an express way between both sides of Alexandria Port with no intersections along its length of 1.5 Km. In order to achieve that purpose , all areas on both sides of the spinal road were re-planned to separate cargo storage yards on the northern side and all administrative , service buildings and gates on the southern side of the road. Re-planning included demolishing some of the existing building and construction of additional buildings. The island separating both direction of the road was designed to accommodate a concrete under ground tunnel for sewage, water supply, fire fighting and electric supply utility networks. The design included dredging and backfilling of Mahmoudia canal outlet area of area 30 000 sq.m. and depth 8 meter. In addition to that design included R.C floor tiles and pavement for roads, fences & gates, site works, wastewater networks, potable water networks, fire fighting system, low and medium voltage networks and information systems.
