During his inspection tour of the new visitors' building in the Pyramids archaeological area, Mohy said that the project of developing the Pyramids Plateau will be opened in the second half of 2019 with a cost of about EGP 500 million.

The visitors' building will group 12 ticket windows including two windows for people with physical challenges, four others for the Egyptian visitors and six for the foreigners along with three others for the students, Mohy added.
