Nahda Square reopens post-renovations

CAIRO: Nahda Square was reopened to the public on Sunday following extensive renovations that began after the forced dispersal of the pro-Muslim Brotherhood sit-in being held there in mid-August.


“The renovations include new traffic layouts that will end traffic congestion in Nahda Square and from in front of Cairo University,” said Giza Governor Ali Abd el-Rahman, adding that the total cost reached 25 million EGP.


Minister of Housing Ibrahim Mahlab and Minister of Local Development Adel Labib inaugurated the square, located in Giza.


Nahda Square served as one of two locations for sit-ins by supporters of former President Mohamed Morsi who were demanding his reinstatement in power after he was ousted on July 3.
