Desert Highway (road 15) between Ma'an and Aqaba at Southern Jordan
It's the main north-south road in Jordan connecting Syria and other countries of Middle East (and Europe) with Egypt (and Africa) and Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia (also Mecca and Medina)

At this point the road starts to descend from Trans Jordanian plateau to southern desert. The difference of height is more than 400 m along 5 km of road.

Funny Sign! Why do you need to warn driver of a better condition on the road?

Along the coast of Dead Sea.
Originally the road was built just little bit higher from the level of water but the surface of Dead Sea is falling fast.

North of Dead Sea the main road is turning to east and running up to Amman. Road 65 will continue north as 2-lane road along Jordan Valley

Coastal road from Tala bay to Aqaba













Inside the city people don't really care about the lanes...

Road 65 from Aqaba to Dead Sea


It was 2x2 until the Aqaba Special Economic Zone checkpoint.


The most annoying thing were the speed bumps before and after the road crossings and inside towns.

The speed limit was 100km/h for cars and 90km/h for trucks.


That's the Dead Sea.

It appears that the northern third of the new Amman Eastern Bypass is completed. The southern two-thirds were under construction as of June 2013. Highway 15 is also being upgraded.
