A long-awaited underground parking garage in Cairo's Tahrir Square was inaugurated on Saturday.

Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab, Minister of Local Development Adel Labib, and Governor of Cairo Galal Mostafa attended the inauguration ceremony for the four-level garage, which is located in front of the Egyptian Museum.

There is space for 1,700 cars and 24 tourist buses, according to official statements given at the inauguration ceremony.

Mostafa said during the inauguration that parking in the garage will be for free until Monday, when charges will be applied.

He also stressed that the garage will help with traffic management in downtown Cairo's congested streets.

Arab Contractors constructed the parking garage, while Arab Contractors for Maintenance and Services (ACMS) are responsible for the garage's maintenance, cleanliness and services.
