Some contractors pass under the radar, and we had the chance to catch up with two of them in Egypt. The story they tell is amazing, the job they are carrying out should be applauded by the masses.
Oasis: this stretch of fertile ground surrounded by desert.
Easy to imagine the struggle that is travelling hundreds of kilometres from one to another, Mr Mohamed Abd Raouf Hussien Chairman of RSquared Construction tell us how they built 100km of road to connect The Siwa Oasis to the Qara Oasis while:
✔ Finishing the project before the deadline.
✔ Saving almost 20 million Egyptian pounds (1 million euro).
Oases offer the only available water in the vastness of the desert, playing for years a vital role for trade.
Siwa is an extremely fertile and urban oasis and one of Egypt's most isolated settlements with about 33,000 people, of about 80 km (50 mi) in length and 20 km (12 mi) wide. 100km away is located the Qara Oasis with a population of only 363 people.
