The decree allocated a total land area of 41,703 feddans of the state's lands in New Alamein to NUCA as well as other 7,268 feddans of coastal lands located along the Alexandria-Marsa Matrouh road for the city.
On March 1, Sisi inaugurated the first phase of New Alamein, which will also include a national university that comprises a bunch of applied science faculties, an opera house, a library, and a museum.
The city is located on an area of more than 48,000 feddans (49,824 acres) in Alamein town on Egypt's Mediterranean coast. It is designed to include 5,000 housing units to accommodate more than 400,000 inhabitants.
