Elkin orders construction delay in Old City following residents’ outcry

United by their outrage over a road repaving project slated to begin next week in the Old City – which they say will put the lives of their most vulnerable community members at risk – leaders from the Jewish and Armenian quarters have successfully lobbied the government to temporarily halt construction.

Jerusalem Affairs Minister Ze’ev Elkin ordered the project delayed on Tuesday until the residents’ concerns are adequately addressed by the Jerusalem Development Authority and municipality.
