Prime Minister gives directives to expedite construction during a site visit
Work on the $119m Saada West project in the Muharraq area of Bahrain is said to be progressing at a fast pace, according to a report published by the Bahrain News Agency. 18,000sqm of reclamation work is said to be complete, which includes jetties and walls to block water.
The project is being developed in phases, with phase one covering residential and retail facilities including the construction of seven buildings and 45 restaurants and cafes. Work on phase one is expected to be complete by April next year.
Designed to be an outlet for citizens living in Muharraq, as well as a recreational and commercial monument, the project has been endorsed by HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa. Development is being led by Bahrain Real Estate Investment (Edamah), the real estate arm of the Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company.
During a site visit, the Prince was briefed on the project and issued directives to expedite construction of the multi-storey car park and put it out to tender, with the aim of avoiding traffic congestions during construction work.
“The citizens of Bahrain in various regions are the pillar and cornerstone of the development process, and we have to harness all potentials and direct them towards efforts to enhance the progress that benefits Bahrain and its people,” said the Prince.
The Prince also highlighted the importance of speeding up the issuance of construction permits, to avoid delaying investments and impacting Bahrain’s importance as a hub for investments and investors.
