Works Minister Ibrahim Al Hawaj inspected the progress of the reclamation project in view of the road network leading to the first phase of the East Sitra Town.

He stressed the ministry’s resolve to keep pace with the growing urban and investment development, by upgrading the infrastructure, which would contribute to achieving the goals of 2030 Bahrain Economic Vision.

A four-lane highway in both directions will be constructed in its first stage. The project also includes a 50-metre-wide sea crossing at the northern port of the city and a 55-metre-wide second sea crossing at the southern port.

The new artery will be linked to the main road network via Shaikh Salman bin Ahmed Al Fateh Street Highway in the north, passing through Highway 1, and from there to the intersection of Bapco Depots in the South.

As reported earlier in the GDN, work on the first phase of the multi-million dinar East Sitra Town project is on track, paving the way for the fifth residential city in the kingdom.

A total of 3,300 housing units will be constructed as part of the massive three-phase project which costs BD260 million. The project, designed to accommodate around 20,640 people, will include schools, kindergartens, nurseries, public parks, children’s playgrounds and other facilities.

The planned residential town will also have a 6.2km beachfront, along with 13km of cycling lanes and 120km of pavements for pedestrians.
