The article reports that Jordan's Ministry of Transport has decided to fully restructure the Amman-Zarqa rail project, after terminating the contract of the winning Kuwaiti-Spanish consortium for the second time. The light railway will now be built as a public procurement scheme, after the build-operate-transfer framework was abandoned by the government. Kuwait's Aknan Global and Spain's Ineco had failed to raise the required funding for the scheme by the agreed deadline.
