Egypt/ Sudan Road Border Open?

Hi,

I have been told that the road border between Egypt and Sudan may have or could be soon opening up, as the road has been completed.

Can anyone confirm if the road has been done and therefore we can use the road border and not the ferry to cross from Eygpt to Sudan

Thanks

The last information I've heard is that it is closed. It seems to be a "teaser" that raises it's head from time to time.
Someone else has posted this on another forum on 16th November just gone -

"Hello, to help anyone else interested in this information....

We were given information by an NGO which is using this road regularly, but after MUCH searching, it seems we were not permitted to do this journey in a vehicle without local licence plates (we are travelling on South African plates). It seems local traffic only..

Cheers, Alex"

Omar -
I also have an Egyptian plated car but I'm not in a position to go down there and find out, I'm off to Siwa in a couple of weeks anyway.
