-JO - Amman Development Corridor 
The Amman Development Corridor Project will support objectives within the framework of the current Country Assistance strategy (CAS), namely enhancing conditions for growth led by the private sector, through the construction of the much-needed road link, and logistics platform to facilitate transit modes, and, through accessibility to affordable land, for productive investments and urban development purposes. The Project will support private sector development, including the Bank's Infrastructure Action Plan, which calls for more responsiveness to Client demands for infrastructure development. Through its components, the project will: 1) implement the first phase of the Amman Ring Road (ARR), which includes Section 1 with two interchanges at the Desert Highway and at Sahab-Muwaqqar Road; Section 2, includes the Madounah Road Interchange and access to the new Customs Depot, Inland Port facilities, and the Fork Interchange with the Zarqa Eastern Bypass, including some services and access roads; and, Section 3, financed by the European Investment Bank (EIB), entails two segments - connection of ARR-1 with the Zarqa-Syrian Border Highway, and interchanges at the intersection with the Zarqa-Amman Highway, and a viaduct ending at the Yajouz Road Intersection; 2) develop an inland port at the Madounah Interchange, through access infrastructure, primarily roads and fencing, and extension of trunk and network infrastructure for utility services. The Inland Port consists of a Logistics Service, while support on-going reforms shall consolidate the truck industry by reducing the number of operators, creating competition to improve efficiency and service quality, and, renew the trucking fleet; and, 3) provide technical support for urban planning initiatives, including a master plan for the Amman Development Corridor (ADC). In addition it will support improvements in the coordination and integration of transport, urban development and land use planning initiatives, by calibrating and regularly updating the traffic model developed for the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM), to assess the economic viability of the ARR, and, will conduct traffic engineering surveys and other studies. Further assistance will be provided to prepare for Phases 2 and 3 - the western and northern sections of the ARR; and, 4) Project Management, will comprise administrative and monitoring activities.**
