During a special interview on "Donya Ya Donya" program, this morning, Minister of Public Works and Housing Falah Omoush said that the Ministry does not intend to implement any new projects in 2020, as maintenance work will be implemented next year in all roads of the Kingdom.

Omoush added that there are at least 160 emergency rooms in various governorates of the Kingdom equipped with the necessary mechanisms in preparation for winter.

He explained that maintenance work is underway on three projects in the Dead Sea area, adding that the roads in the area will be reformed. In addition, valleys and excavations caused by the flashfloods last year and the bridges in the area will be also reformed.

Around 65% of the maintenance works on the Desert highway has been completed so far, as the works are expected to be completed by the middle of next year, Omoush mentioned.

Talking about housing and land projects, Omoush pointed out that such projects target middle-income people and residents of Jordanian governorates, where there are 900 apartments and 1700 plots of land at prices suitable for citizens.

The duration for implementing infrastructure projects in Amman, such as Marj al-Hamam intersection, Al-Hurriyah St and the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project is up to 18 months, and are expected to be completed during the period set.
