Deputy Governor of Marib Abd-Rabbu Miftah and Director of al-Rahaba District Mohammad al-Qarda'i launched Wednesday measures of building and asphalting al-Rahaba Road southwestern Marib.
The new road will replace the former one, which was swept by floods days ago.
Miftah directed al-Qarda'i to provide equipment for opening sub-roads to villages still encircled by floods.
The road's length is 40 km and mountainous. It will be financed by Marib local authority.
