Bahrain government announces package of key initiatives for trade and infrastructure development

As part of the Bahrain Capital Governorate improvement projects, plans have been announced for a number of new developments in Sitra; these include a 4,238sqm Central Market, as well as two new multi-purpose parks.

The announcements followed on from visits to the project sites by Wael bin Nasser Al Mubarak, Minister of Municipalities Affairs and Agriculture, and Ibrahim bin Hassan Al Hawaj, Minister of Works.

The ministers highlighted the importance of strengthening co-operation between the executive and legislative branches, emphasising the prominent role of the Capital Municipal Council in project planning and delivery.

Wael bin Nasser Al Mubarak affirmed the ministry is keen to implement service projects that contribute to developing infrastructure, as well as provide high-quality municipal and utility services, in a way that best meets the needs of the community. “Planning is under way to establish an 8,200sqm football stadium in Block 608 in Sitra.” He also pointed out that the Ma’ameer Park had recently been re-opened after its renovation in co-operation with Bapco.

The minister highlighted other planned projects, including the Seafront in Eker Village, and the afforestation of many areas in Sitra, as part of the National Afforestation Campaign.

Meanwhile, the Works Ministry is implementing its own differentiated strategy, including an extensive range of sanitation services. These will connect various homes and buildings to the sewage network in blocks 623, 624, 607 and 608. There are also transport initiatives, including new paving programmes on a number of roads in Ma’ameer, Eker and Sitra, with a view to improving traffic movement and further developing the rainwater drainage system.
