Railway network to be formed in Jordan

The Saudi Jordanian Investment Fund (SJIF) and the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to establish a railway in Jordan.

The railway will connect Aqaba’s seaports to a dry port that will be constructed in Ma’an governorate, forming the first phase of Jordan’s national railway network, according to a joint statement obtained by Xinhua on Sunday, Feb. 10.

The project worth 500 million dinars (about 700 million U.S. dollars) contains constructing a new railway line inside the city of Aqaba connecting the southern seaport and container terminal with the existing line.
