Najaf launches Road Project with Saudi Arabia

By John Lee.

The Governor of Najaf governorate has announced a new road project linking the governorate with Saudi Arabia.

Luay Al-Yassiry (pictured) is quoted as saying that the project will include the paving a 239-kilometer road, and the building of border outlets and areas for trade.

The first phase of the project includes paving 20 kilometres of the road, with the construction of a 288 metre-long bridge in Wadi Hasab.

The Arar border crossing linking Iraq and Saudi Arabia reopened last month following a 30-year closure.
