The First Toll Road in Syria

Syrian Minister of Transport, Ali Hammoud, said that the Ministry is working on The Great Interchange of Homs (GIH), a project that links Hassia (an industrial city in rural Homs), to Rubaida village that sits on Homs-Tartus road.

The GIH will be the first 46km-toll highway in Syria, Hammoud said in a statement posted on the Syrian Prime Ministry official Facebook page, on 29 December.

Gravel will be brought from the industrial city of Hassia to Qattinah village, at the beginning of January 2020, according to Hammoud.
