Sana’a plans to improve services
Juman said the plan comes following the completion of a plan implemented during Ramadan aimed at cleaning capital streets in cooperation with youth initiatives.
During the upcoming days, Sana’a will implement a set of plans to improve the situation in the city, Juman said.
"We all observe the actions of capital city leadership on the ground."
Sana’a leadership created an urgent plan Saturday to provide all the basic services for residents such as water, electricity and street light maintenance, in addition to improving health and service facility performances.
Currently, Sana’a is witnessing improvements made to some streets after being exposed to damages during last year's political uprising.
"The capital city at the moment is executing a plan to rehabilitate the capital streets,” Juman said.
Some residents said current Sana’a government leadership has rendered city streets more beautiful, though some things have not been done properly.
Hani Al-Qadasi, a private sector employee, said Sana'a underwent a positive change during Ramadan.
"Dust and garbage were removed from Khawlan Street and many other places in the city,” Al-Qadasi said. “Lamp posts were restored, and this work deserves a vote of thanks."
However, some streets that were rehabilitated have been exposed to potholes once more following the recent bouts of rainfall, he said.
Eman Al-Hakim, a student at the University of Modern Sciences, said she saw a difference in terms of the cleanliness of city streets, and she hopes Sana’a will see further improvements so that it becomes a pride point for residents and for Yemenis.
The capital city should appear at its best beauty as an honor for all Yemenis, Juman said, indicating the plan that is to be executed will resolve the problems of water, electricity and sanitation, in addition to preparing for the coming school year.
"In the course of the upcoming months, we will solve all problems according to our existing ability."
Barriers were placed on Seventy Meters Road in an attempt to prevent more traffic accidents there frequently occur in that particular area, he said. The private sector, youth initiatives and civil society organizations all took part and contributed to the plan prepared by capital city leadership, Juman said.
