It said the plan had been paused for a while, but it is likely to be revived to contain the increasing population and traffic congestions.

State Minister for Media Affairs Faisal Al-Shboul said that the proposal for an administrative capital dated back to 2017, but the government paused the idea for a while.

Now, he asserted it has been brought up for discussion.

It is assumed that the new city will soon be announced. It will be smart, integrated, and responsive to technology. The city would be built between Amman and Zarqa to contain the exponential population increase, according to Shboul.
