The failed highways of the CDR

All of the highways built post-war by the Council for Development and Reconstrution (CDR) are today yet again completely flooded, without any proper water evacuation.

The CDR is incapable of building proper highways. With this level of incompetence, how can the CDR be trusted to produce strategies and policies? How can the CDR be trusted when they say the Fouad Boutros highway is necessary?

The CDR and Municipality want to convince us that the Fouad Boutros highway is virtuous and that the tens of world-renowned urban experts who oppose it are wrong – and yet are incapable of producing one decent infrastructure.

Their highway designs are flawed, their strategies are flawed, any plan for more highways is flawed, the Fouad Boutros highway is flawed and defunct!
