He told Daily News Egypt that the development cost of the 12-km-length Green River is approximately EGP 6-7bn.

The first part of the Green River project will be built on an area of 100 feddan, and will be allocated for services projects.
He further revealed that the NUCA had paid approximately EGP 10bn for the infrastructure’s development in the first phase of the NAC.
