TAIF — Work on the flyover known as Jisr Al-Dalal in downtown Taif has been stalled for the past two years after the foundation stone for the project was laid. The plaque that was installed at the time of project’s launch stated that it would be completed in a year and a half.

Responding to the citizens’ complaints regarding the delay in completing the project, Taif Mayor Mohammed Bin Homail said the work was stopped due to a lack of funds. The flyover was to be constructed on Jaish Road, which heads to the Education Square. The project also included a tunnel leading to the airport.

“We were forced to halt the project because no financial allocations were made to pay the compensation to property owners,” Bin Homail told Okaz/Saudi Gazette. “We are now revising the project plan to implement it using available funds,” he explained.
