One of the largest prison complexes in Egypt, the El Wady El Gadeed's prison wall was build to a length of 4,200 meters. With a total cost of 100,000,000 Egyptian Pounds, the highest security standards were required of El Dawlia during this development and were considered in all phases of development. The entirety of the prison's infrastructure as well as the road works were part of the project and the development of the secondary service buildings for the prison. Security was the main concern of this project and as such a full alarm system was installed as well as several levels of physical barriers to prevent escape or unmonitored entry to the prison. The prison complex's watch towers were also developed at different heights to cover the entire complex with total line of sight.
