The ministry, in collaboration with the Public Security Directorate (PSD), will implement traffic diversions on Airport Road, with closure in both directions and diversion to the service road starting from midnight on Saturday, March 30, 2024, until the following morning, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

These diversions include Closure no. 1, where traffic from the south heading towards Amman will be redirected at the exit leading to Amman Development Corridor to Tannib Bridge. Drivers will then turn around over the bridge and return via the service road towards Amman, exiting from the service road via the first exit after the location of the pedestrian bridge to be installed.

Another diversion, Closure no. 2, will redirect traffic coming from Amman Development Corridor  to the service lane before Tannib Bridge towards Amman. Drivers will return to Airport Road via the first exit to the service road after the location of the pedestrian bridge, while traffic heading to Queen Alia Airport Road and southern governorates remains unaffected.

Closure no. 3 involves diverting traffic from Amman towards the south to the service lane, exiting from the service road via the designated exit after the location of the pedestrian bridge.

Completion of all works and the resumption of traffic on the road are expected by the morning of Saturday, March 30, 2024. The ministry has equipped the diversion site with all necessary safety measures.
