Phase B work on the Gei Ben-Hennom Road set to link the southern Old City basin with western Jerusalem will begin next week, the Company for the Development of east Jerusalem said Tuesday. The current phase of the project will double the width of the new road from the Sultan's Pool to the City of David, Silwan, the Western Wall and the Mount of Olives. The first phase was inaugurated seven months ago, the government company said, adding that the total cost of the road was estimated to be NIS 12 million. The company is carrying out the project in conjunction with the City of Jerusalem, the Transportation Ministry, the Tourism Ministry and other bodies.
