Abstract

Sustainable development of national schemes requires knowledge of natural, environmental, economic and social resources. It also requires identifying the mutual influences between these resources to achieve the equation of the interaction, producing the sustainable development of nationalism, transportation hubs of national associations and the piercing of the region’s planning for the country. One of the means used and the research’s aims is to identify the criteria needed to determine the best course for these axes so as to achieve the best performance and lowest cost in the construction phase and sustainable development at start up and in post-construction. This theory has been applied to the axis of development and reconstruction through the penetration of the Western Desert in order to transfer a lifeline to it. A new approach to a sustainable and integrated development with the artery of the Nile in Egypt was also suggested. This approach provides opportunities for development on the western side of Egypt. It also gives balance and harmony in the geographic distribution of development from east to west along the centre of development on the northern coast and parallel to the Nile Valley using the diagrams of geological and geographic analysis for the planned regions in Egypt. A set of results can be concluded from this search and the most important is that the priorities are to provide arteries for national transportation, being an ideal solution for sustainable development of national plans in the long run to achieve future sustainable development in Egypt. The area between the axis of development and the Nile River valley is the first fruit of the project. There is also a set of conclusions, the most important being that whenever the axis penetrates more than one region, it gives an advantage which is the diversity of resources to achieve integration between the regions. Given that
