PRINCE Khaled Al-Faisal, the Emir of the Makkah region, has asked the citizens of Jeddah to be more patient with the ongoing projects undertaken by the municipality during the launch of the King Abdullah Road on Wednesday.
Prince Al-Faisal said that the completion of King Abdullah Road that serves to help ease the traffic jams in the city is but an example of the many projects the municipality has lined up that stands to transform Jeddah within five years' time. "I am sure the results (of all these projects) will be excellent," he said.

Jeddah Mayor Adel Faqih said completing the King Abdullah Road, which links the east and west sides of the city, cost SR290 million.
The project involved the ongoing construction or reconstruction of the King Fahd Street, Al-Tawbah Street, Ra'as Al-Khaymah, and Khaled bin Al-Waleed Street, all of which intersect with the King Abdullah Road.
The municipality also installed lighting and traffic signs at the project sites.
Some 30,000 tons of cement approved by the Ministry of Transport was used in asphalting the roads.
