Jordan- Airport road traffic to be diverted to service routes

(MENAFN - Jordan Times) The Ministry of Public Works and Housing will begin diverting traffic from the airport road to service roads starting next month, a ministry official said on Saturday. In late December, authorities will divert traffic to a three-kilometre detour starting at the junction between the Ring Road and the airport road, in order to have all traffic using the two-lane service roads as of next summer, the ministry's secretary general, Sami Halaseh, told The Jordan Times. The 14-metre wide service roads will become the main route between Amman to the Queen Alia International Airport until construction on the main road is completed, Halaseh, who accompanied Minister of Public Works and Housing Alaa Batayneh on a recent visit to the construction site, added. The JD70 million project is expected to increase the capacity of the airport road and will provide alternative routes and exits, he added. Work on the project, which started in December 2008, is well under way, he said, noting that the contractor has already finished all preparations to build the service lanes. The contractor implementing the first phase of the project is currently working to lay asphalt on the service roads after completing infrastructure work, he added. By Khalid Neimat
