New Saudi road projects to drastically ease traffic
New underpasses and bridges being built in Jeddah will improve traffic movement by as much as 90 percent once complete, Brig. Gen. Zaid Al-Hamzi, Jeddah traffic police spokesman, told Arab News.
More than 3.5 million vehicles visit Jeddah every day, creating congestion at intersections and areas where construction is taking place.
The new development projects, which have been hit with delays, come within a mass restructuring initiative taking place in several cities Kingdom-wide.
