AMMAN — Public Works Minister Sami Halaseh on Monday conducted field visits to check on construction projects for schools and roads in Zarqa and Ruseifa, the ministry said. 

Halaseh checked on five schools under construction, including the 28-classroom Saad Bin Abu Waqqas School, a JD1.5-million project funded by a grant from the Saudi Fund for Development, the ministry said in a statement. 

The minister also visited Al Qasem School, a 30-classroom school being built on 4,500 square metres at a cost of JD1.4 million, funded by the European Investment Bank. 

He checked on progress at Fatima Al Zahraa School, funded by the World Bank at a cost of JD1.2 million. The school will have 24 classrooms on 4,600 square metres. 

The minister also checked on the progress of roads and bridges being built at a cost of JD37 million, part of which is funded by the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development.

The project includes the expansion and improvement of the Zarqa-Birin road. 


At the end of the tour, Halaseh checked on work at an intersection and bridge in Ruseifa, being implemented for JD3 million, which is now open to vehicles.
