Why does a promising urban rehabilitation project like the one GAM is doing come with so much agony, dirt, carelessness.
This fiasco has been going on for too long.
Every reasonable person knows that a major rehabilitation of a street will result in disruptions. But the way the construction work in Faisal Street has been going on is beyond belief!
I am not talking about the design, which, although some people are objecting to, I think will turn out fine. But the digging and building and rubble and trash has just been a shameful affair.
Residents, merchants and tourist have really suffered from this. And Amman’s image, as well as GAM’s reputation has been tarnished.
Yesterday I walked across Faisal Streets. I think the pictures above talk for themselves. What on earth does the contractor think he’s doing. I have been seeing construction material leftovers laying there for months and months.
Now, all this stuff is being mixed up with street garbage. What a cocktail!
All it takes is for a senior member of GAM or the contracting company management to take a walk and get people of their butts to clean the rubble and to finish the loose ends here and there.
What we see now is just the epitome of carelessness and disrespect for our city.
