Ministry to follow up on progress in railway studies

The Cabinet on Monday assigned the Ministry of Transport to track progress in studies pertaining to the envisioned national railway project.
 
The project seeks to connect a number of the Kingdom’s cities and production centres to a railway network that would also provide access to neighbouring countries, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
 
The Cabinet has also decided to approve a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with a coalition of Jordanian and Chinese companies.
 
As part of the MoU, the aforementioned coalition will assist the Transport Ministry, whose mandate is to oversee all transport-related national projects, with preparing and presenting feasibility studies, and the issuance of necessary legal documents.
