Anbar to Upgrade its Border Crossings

Anbar Council has launched a project to upgrade its three border crossings, with the intention of raising additional revenue, the head of the council’s investment committee said on Tuesday.

The three border crossings are:

  • Arar (on border with Saudi Arabia);
  • Tarbiel [Tirbil] (on border with Jordan); and
  • al-Tanf (on border with Syria).

The project will involve the building of several garages for lorries and at least one hotel.

“The revenues [from increased traffic through these border posts] will be used to finance projects throughout Anbar,” said Mezher Hassan, head of the council’s investment committee.
