Following the series of road accidents that have recently taken place on the Desert Highway, known as "death road," the Public Services and Parliamentary Transport Committee is scheduled to carry out an inspection tour to the road today in order to check on the progress of the Desert Highway project.
Minister of Public Works and Housing Falah Omoush, a representative of the Central Traffic Department (CTD) and a number of officials concerned with public safety will take part in the tour in order to come up with recommendations to overcome the obstacles that may hinder the works on the road.
The tour comes after Jordanians wondered why the government is not taking any action and called on various state institutions to take measures to protect the lives of citizens and reduce the number of traffic accidents.
