The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) is committed towards the development of the Citadel as a unique
attraction and functional space in Amman that is linked to the downtown cluster and can be leveraged to
facilitate tourism-related economic development and activity in Amman as a venue for education, cultural
events, and day and night time tourism. To that purpose, GAM has identified the development of a funicular
railway to link the Citadel site with downtown as a potential initiative. The project needs to be carried out in
a manner that is environmentally compliant taking into consideration all necessary mitigation measures
throughout its life cycle.
