Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) is carrying out construction works within Al-Rahmaneyyah neighborhood in Sweileh, in addition to setting up a park.

GAM started working in the neighborhood, ever since His Majesty King Abdullah II's visit last Friday as he listened to public demands and then directed the relevant parties to take necessary actions.

Royal Court Advisor, President of Royal Directions Execution Committee Yousef Issawi and Mayor of Amman Eng. Omar Al-Maani followed on the work's progress throughout the past three days.

Maani said that the Monarch's directions powered by his visit to the neighborhood have really inspired GAM's development aspects to improve the neighborhood, communicate and cooperate with its residents.

The Mayor called on the residents to maintain the so far implemented facilities and renovation works and to intensify their participation to preserve the wonderful urban scenery of Amman.

"GAM will finish the 7.5 donum spacious park before Eid Al-Fitr. The park will include plazas, wooden chutes, a football field, sand playgrounds for children, shaded sittings, and various gardening creations," he noted.

The Municipality has started widening, paving and opening 25.000 square m streets in the neighborhood, in addition to 1300 square m sidewalks along maintaining and repainting present ones.

GAM is carrying on other maintenance works which include removing rubbles and soil from 10 donums open spaces and plazas, in addition to maintaining lighting poles in the streets and installing new ones. To embellish the neighborhood even more, the Municipality is also working on painting concrete buildings, installing traffic signs, maintaining poles and street naming and building numbering boards.

Maani stressed that GAM is working on a comprehensive plan to revive cultural and social movement as it will hold training courses for all age groups, cultural and social activities including "Arts for All" workshop which took off on August 31, and "My Mobile Library". The chosen activities will be further set through a poll to be distributed among Rahmaneyyah residents to best figure out their needs and preferences.

For his part, Manager of Amman City, Eng. Ammar Gharaibeh noted that GAM has been working round the clock since receiving the Royal directions adding that construction works are going according to plan and will be finished before Eid A-Fitr.
