Wakalat Street

Wakalat Street (Arabic: شارع الوكالات) sometimes spelled as Al-Wakalat Street, is a street in Amman, Jordan, in the district of Sweifieh. The street was rehabilitated in 2007. The project included paving the street, planting trees, and regulating commercial signs. The idea of the rehabilitation of the street was to create a place in Amman where pedestrians would walk safely and freely away from traffic. With its completion Amman had finally gained its very first first-rate pedestrian public space. Before the completion of the project, the street used to allow parking, and cars driving through. [1]
