  • Description

    On Nov. 10, King Hussein of Jordan will inaugurate a new 210-mile long road from Aqaba to Amman, the capital. Previously, a journey to Aqaba took as much as 12 miles over a desert road in very bad condition. Now, the trip from Amman will only take about five hours. Some heavily loaded trucks have taken several days to make the journey.

    The new roadway cost in the region of GBP2 million. But it is a good investment as the cost of importing and exporting from Jordan will be considerably less.
