This afternoon Dr. Khaled Al-me, Minister of Antiquities to Luxor City, visited the Avenue of Sphinxes to check out the latest developments in the Rams Road Development Project.
During the visit he was accompanied by the General / Full Minister of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority, Dr. Mustafa Waziri, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Brigadier General Hisham Samir, Assistant Minister for Engineering and Projects, and Mohamed Badr, Governor of Luxor.
The visit included a preview of the construction, renovation, development and diapers work on site. The presence heard an explanation of the ongoing archaeological work by Mustafa Jr. Director-General of Karnak and Musharraf on the Avenue of Sphinxes, while Major Mohamed Samy of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority explained the construction and engineering work in the Avenue of Sphinxes. The visit also included large parts of the road stretching from the Temple of Luxor to the Temple of Mut and Karnak Temple.
The above is derived from a machine-translation from Arabic. I am puzzled by the reference to "diapers"!
