Abu Al-Samin said the ministry will also work on improving other roads in the vicinity, although the projects do not fall under the ministry’s responsibility.

The minister said that work under the current project covered the area from the Eshtafina triangle to the intersection of the town of Eshtafina, and from that to the Mar Elias intersection towards the checkpoint of Al-Swan, all the way to Bir Al-Ajlouni, he added.

He said the work included road expansion, asphalt mixing, sidewalks, and a drainage system on both sides of the road. Metal barriers were also placed to separate lanes on both sides of the road, sidewalks and isles were painted, and speed bumps were created to force speeding vehicles to slow down.

The minister asserted that the roads were constructed according to the highest global standards.

He pointed out that work began on November 6 to expand an 8m -wide road extending from the Ajloun Castle triangle towards the access point of the cable car.

He explained that the project is under the jurisdiction of the Ajloun Municipality, which is expected to complete it within a month from its starting date.

He asserted that his ministry will not hesitate to provide the best infrastructure services for projects, and tourist sites across the Kingdom. He explained that work is underway in coordination with the relevant authorities to implement several projects that serve tourist sites, which will contribute to revitalizing the tourism activity, a step which will have a positive effect on the Jordanian economy.
