AMMAN — The Land Transport Regulatory Commission (LTRC) has started work on an urban transport project in Zarqa, Madaba and Irbid, Director General Marwan Hmoud said on Tuesday.

Hmoud said the project includes the development of new routes to serve residential areas and schools, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Prime Minister Hani Mulki’s recent visit to the LTRC aimed at developing the public transport system, Dmour said, adding that the commission has proposed 20 projects to achieve this.
