"Among these major works, is the implementation of a new asphalt formula which will bring an end to the loose gravel problem. The new formula does not use natural sand and instead replaces it with small stones with polymer."
These contracts have taken into consideration the recommendations of the five-member committee for solving the traffic congestion and carrying out the urgent requests of the cabinet.
