AMMAN — The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) Council on Wednesday approved three tenders worth JD16.337 million to kick off the next phase of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Wednesday.

The tenders included Fountains Square and Omar Matar Street worth JD4.920 million, station link worth JD238 million, and the University of Jordan — Sweileh tender worth JD10.89 million. Amman Mayor Yousef Shawarbeh said that the BRT project is progressing according to the timetable, noting that the project’s infrastructure will be completed by the end of 2020.

The BRT, whose construction started in 2010, but was halted and delayed several times due to technical issues, will have a capacity of 120 passengers per bus, and serve almost 25 kilometres of streets, according to GAM officials, who added that the transport system should benefit Amman’s residents for at least the next 20 years.
