The Gulf Cooperation Council program to reconstruct Gaza continues to fund street and road rehabilitation and maintenance projects in the Gaza Strip and has granted $35.7 million to Gaza municipalities through the Islamic Development Bank in Jeddah.
The Director General of the department of coordination and facilitation of aid in PECDAR, Wael Salah, has made a statement explaining that the projects funded included a number of roads and streets in need of repair and maintenance in order for them to be suitable for traffic and to prevent accidents.
He also added that most municipalities in the Strip will benefit from these projects, and stressed the program's interest in the road sector as it significantly impacts people's lives and the mobility of the residents.
He also pointed out that the project funded five bundles of road and street maintenance and rehabilitation projects, such as the Coastal Road, which is 6 km long, the expansion of Gamal Abdel Nasser Street between Rafah and Khan Younis, the completion of the Al-Tufah Street in Khan Younis, as well as the Coastal Road. more
