A new Sahel Majali Mega Project

I don’t know what one should do when he/she reads something like this.

OK, here are my issues:

1- Sahel El Majali is talking about it. It is a multi-billion project.

2- How they came up with the numbers is beyond my mental abilities.

3- Why link with authoritarian regimes that are much powerful than our authoritarian regime? This rail will add another source of dependency on parties that can’t be trusted.

4- The Government has allocated around $140 million for land acquisition. Of course, you need to know where the track will go before you can buy the land. Someone will buy the land with dirt cheap prices and sell it to the government at a much higher price. Isn’t this how the infrastructure business is done in Jordan?
