The work on restoring the procession street between Karnak and Luxor Temples (the so-called "Sphinx Avenue"), begun in 2005 and interrupted in 2011, will be continued:

" Al-Kabbash Road Project Resumes in Luxor " (Egypt Today, 21.05.2017)

Quote:
... Al-Kabbash Road project will be resumed with a budget of 230 million EGP ($12.7 million) in cooperation with Luxor governorate, ...

... Abou el-Ela said the road will be paved to allow easy access for visitors in addition to moving utilities like electricity and water. The project includes the development of the floors, the completion of the excavation and repairs to the collection of Al-Kabbash, ram-headed sphinxes, in the warehouses followed by re-installing them. ...

... Al-Kabbash Road is the road that connects Luxor Temple to Karnak Temple.

The project to excavate and restore Al-Kabbash Road began in 2005 and about 600 million EGP have been spent on the project. The project was halted after 2011’s January 25 Revolution.

Greetings, Lutz.
