Mirage Co. for Hotels & Touristic Development (one of Travco group of companies) was in the process of establishing a resort at North Abu Al-Darag, an area located on a mountain top overlooking the Gulf of Suez. Due to its location within a mountainous area, an overpass was to be constructed to connect the resort to the beach area.
Environics was commissioned to prepare an EIA study for the construction and operation of the overpass and marine platform.
The EIA included:
Description of the proposed project & its components.
Description of the receptor environment.
Development of a bathymetric map for the project location.
Discussion of the project alternatives.
Identification & assessment of environmental impacts, and presentation of mitigation measures.
Outline for an environmental management and monitoring plan.
