Bahra Cables signs SR250 million contract with Saudi Bin Laden Group to supply electrical cables to Shamiya project
Idriss: We are proud to be chosen for the Shamiya mega project as it confirms the strength of our production policy and use of the latest technologies and high-quality materials.
Covering an area of 1.5 million square meters, the Shamiya mega project will take about 10 years to complete in phases at a total cost of SR40 billion. Public utilities such as schools, fire fighting stations, police stations, clinics, and other public facilities make up 7% of the project zone.
Saudi Bin Laden Group has been assigned all the site development and expansion work, beginning with infrastructure upgrading.
"We are proud to be chosen for the Shamiya mega project as it confirms the strength of our production policy and use of the latest technologies and high-quality materials," Idriss said. "We adopt the latest German techniques that help increase productivity and lowers cost. Also, we have creative ideas to meet the needs of our customers."
Al-Shamiya project is integrated into the structural plan for the development of the central region of Makkah and aims to develop the physical environment commensurate with the nature of the Holy Mosque. Under the project, the road network will be restructured in order to expand the Holy Mosque and accommodate the largest possible number of worshippers. The project will separate pedestrian and vehicular movement to ensure public safety for residents and visitors, safe and rapid exit of pilgrim crowds from the north and alleviate urban development pressure on the area directly bordering the Holy Mosque.
The project also aims to expand the sanctuary grounds to the north and northwest. Developers will benefit from the link to interior Shamia and there will be real estate value-distribution of the development process.
The project is part of a series of developmental projects launched by the Saudi Government for the region surrounding the Holy Mosque, so as to meet the needs of its visitors. It extends from the fringes of the Holy Mosque to beyond the second circular road to the north and from the Holy Mosque Street to the east and Jabal al Qaaba road to the west.
When completed, the Shamia project will accommodate about 250,000 people more and increase capacity to about 400,000 worshipers.
