The Italian industrial group Salini will soon start work on the Ras Ijdir-Imsaad Road agreed upon with Italy in 2008, says Minister of Transport Mohamed Al-Shhoubi.

The tender for the project was announced in early July during Prime Minister Abdel Hamid Dbeiba's visit to Italy.

Al-Shhoubi added in a press statement that the first phase of the project extends from Imsaad to Al-Marj and that work would proceed as soon as completing the price adjustment and land inventory.

According to the transport minister, the Italian company that won the implementation of the fourth phase, which runs from Misrata to Ras Ijder, will be disclosed at the end of October.
