It will contain 60,000 new housing units, in addition to a service area, and approval was given to have a university and a large sports stadium as one of the planning alternatives in it."
He explained, "All the principles of sustainable development will be achieved in this city, which will provide new job opportunities and open development axes to relieve pressure on the city that currently exists."
The Director General of Regional and Local Development confirmed that “the new opportunities will be in the education and services sectors, in addition to the fact that the region will be close to Diyala Governorate so that there will be more communication and integration, in addition to the ring highway that will pass through the city of Ali al-Wardi and near the city of Al-Jawahiri, and all These cities will be completed and connected to each other with the new city.”
