The project includes establishing two separate lanes for vehicle movement: one for trucks dedicated to trade and transportation, and the other for small vehicles and buses serving tourists and travelers. Upon its launch, the project's goal is to accommodate four million passengers annually.

With a total cost of JD22 million, the project is set to be executed over two and a half years, funded and managed by the Aqaba Development Corporation (ADC). It covers an area of 300 dunums with a built-up area of approximately 26,000 square meters.

Additionally, the comprehensive project plan was developed with local Jordanian design input, in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Works and Housing and other relevant authorities. The project's designs adhere to modern construction requirements while preserving Jordan's heritage and cultural legacy, especially in Aqaba.

The tender for the project's first phase will be announced, with implementation scheduled to begin next April, ensuring infrastructure is built to the highest standards.
