This study, which follows the directions of Prime Minister Bisher Al-Khasawneh, will be completed after necessary works — identified by the study — have begun, with funding from the ministry’s budget or local government entities.

On Sunday, Abul Samen inspected an intersection project in the Al-Muqablain area of Amman. During his tour of construction works, he noted that the project will contribute to alleviating heavy traffic. He also stressed the need to complete construction before the end of this year.

During his tour, the minister was presented with a detailed summary of the progress of the project, which is 96 percent complete. Construction works include a four-level intersection, a 650-meter, two-way concrete bridge on Jerusalem Street from Amman towards Airport Street and the Dead Sea, a 476m concrete bridge from Al-Huriyah Street towards Airport Road, a 130-meter tunnel with four lanes, equipped with a fast two-way bus lane, and a ground-level traffic signal.

The project also involves the rehabilitation of surrounding roads, the construction of sidewalks and rainwater drainage systems, lighting and traffic safety works, and other necessary works in accordance with the highest international standards.
