Traffic to be diverted for 3 years in Giza to build metro stations



The Giza Traffic Directorate in coordination with the National Authority for Tunnels announced a plan to divert traffic for a period of three years starting Friday this week in order to construct the al-Kitkat and al-Sudan metro stations.

Sudan Street will be closed in both directions starting from Kitkat square to Teraat al-Sawahel street to construct the Kitkat metro station, according to the statement.

The area starting from al-Din al-Hamamsy street until the start of al-Maleka Zebeida street will also be closed.

The traffic direction will be unified in 17 streets to make up for the closed streets. Parking will be also limited there to facilitate the flow of traffic, according to the statement.

Cars on Sudan street toward Kitkat square will turn right on Maleka Zebeida street, and then left to al-Alamein street which is the alternative parallel street to Sudan street. They will head toward Omar Tosson street and continue until they reach Kitkat square.

Cars coming from Corniche street and Imbaba heading to North Giza Court, the National Heart Institute, and Imbaba General Hospital should turn right on al-Mahatta street until they reach Teraat al-Sawahel street, then North Giza Court and al-Rashidy street. They should then turn left on al-Alamein street and move forward until they reach Kitkat square.
