The “Beirut Is Amazing” project was launched a couple of years ago in an attempt to green up the capital. The plan is to improve and increase green spaces and provide Lebanese with more accessible and attracting streets.
Nadim AbouRizk, Vice President of Beirut’s Municipal council, has been sharing pictures of what Beirut looks like now and how it’s expected to look after the project is implemented. As you can see, the transformation looks amazing but I don’t know if this will ever be implemented, specially that the Sodeco – Mathaf road is one of the busiest roads in Beirut. Did they consider the amount of traffic closing down this road will generate? What are the alternative routes available?
I’d love to know more about this initiative if anyone has more information.
