Work on Giza Plateau development project in full swing: Antiquities minister
Published in Ahram Online on 02 - 02 - 2017

Egypt's Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany toured on Thursday work on the Giza Plateau Development Project and said that the plateau's administrative building would be ready for inauguration very soon.
The minister said that work on the plateau is in full swing, and that the site looks entirely different from how it did two months prior.
El-Enany called for information boards to be erected at the site's ticketing area to serve as a guide for visitors.
Ashraf Mohi, Director-General of Giza Plateau, told Ahram Online that progress on at the site includes the completion of the administration building and the visitor centre. The foundation, pillars and ceiling of the students' building have also been installed.
The purpose of the students' building, Mohi said, would be to educate youth on archaeological work, and especially the excavation process. It is also intended to raise visitors' awareness and understanding of Egyptian heritage.
Mohi said the plateau development project aims to improve security measures to make the site more tourist friendly.
The project started in 2009 but was put on hold in the aftermath of the 2011 revolution for lack of funding. Work on the project resumed late last year.
Mohi said that state-of-the-art security system with monitoring cameras have been installed at the site. A new lighting system to illuminate the Giza Pyramids and the plateau at night is scheduled to be installed soon.
