Sharjah is racing ahead to complete several 'valuable' projects in the Central Region of the emirate, which will provide many jobs for citizens. Prime among these include the Al Dhaid Lake as well as Al Hafiyah Lake in the city of Kalba, (both 3 metres deep), said a report.

Confirming the projects, HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, said work is taking place successively and many engineers in the region, especially women, will join the work in Al Bataeh and Al Dhaid projects at the Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (Sewa).

This came in a call on the "Direct Line" programme, which is broadcast on Sharjah’s radio and television with Mohammed Hassan Khalaf, Director-General of the Sharjah Broadcasting Authority, reported Wam.

During the call, the Sharjah Ruler touched on its upcoming prime project - Al Dhaid Lake, which runs 2 km long, 200 metres wide and 3 metres deep, adding that it is intersected in the middle by Al Dhaid Bridge, giving it an aesthetic view.

The lake, which boasts 420 million gallons of water, will not only cater to Sharjah's utility needs but also help reduce the temperature in the city of Al Dhaid.

In addition to this, Sharjah is also working on the Al Hafiyah Lake project in the city of Kalba which has 200 million gallons of water. Its daily consumption of water for the entire city is only 5 million gallons, enough to serve it for several months, it added.
