MANAMA: Development of the Diyar Al Muharraq masterplan has largely bucked the ramifications of Covid-19 thanks to the adoption of an innovative and flexible approach, it has emerged.

According to Diyar Al Muharraq chief executive Ahmed Alammadi the difficulties brought about by the pandemic were overcome through the use of “our significant talent pool and resources to ensure business continuity and the completion of projects in a timely manner.”

“Given the conditions in 2020, we are proud to say that we have not fallen far behind on our construction schedule, and are pleased with the pace of our current project development as it stands. As we gradually return to normalcy, we remain even more committed to completing our projects and look forward to a journey of growth and success with many more accomplishments in the future,” he added.

One of the largest real estate developers in the kingdom yesterday announced the commencement of work on the 12.2sqkm man-made island city’s entrance junction.

As part of a plan to improve accessibility to residents and visitors alike, work on traffic signals are underway allowing quicker and easier access to the integrated city.

Reconfiguration works began at the beginning of December 2020, for an estimated duration of 9 months.

Eastern Asphalt and Mixed Concrete Company was appointed to build the junction over 5 phases, which are expected to be completed by third quarter of 2021, while ensuring smooth traffic movement throughout this period.

Commenting, Mr Alammadi said, “It is our pleasure to announce the commencement of the junction reconfiguration of Diyar Al Muharraq which aims to provide residents and visitors with facilitated access and ease of movement to major facilities surrounding the main entrance. This step coincides with the readiness of a number of key residential, commercial and touristic attractions in the city, which will increase the influx of visitors to the city overall. We look forward to completing this vital conjunction soon to provide more convenience to residents and guests of Diyar Al Muharraq.”

Upon completion, the reconfigured junction will serve to better facilitate the flow of traffic by easing the movement of vehicles to the major points of interest in the vicinity of the main entrance.

This includes providing easy entrance and exit to and from the Diyar Al Muharraq sales centre, Marassi Galleria, the upcoming Address Marassi Al Bahrain and Vida Marassi Al Bahrain Hotels, Souq Al Baraha, as well as projects in the pipeline such as the new Diyar Marina.

Reviewing progress, the developer said phase 1 of the Jeewan residential project is complete and handover of villas started in November last year, while phase 2 is 98pc complete and handovers are ongoing.

The third phase of the project is expected to be completed by May 2021.

Handover of phase 1 of the Al Bareh residential project, which offers a variety of freehold residential plots and luxury villas for sale, has started, while the second phase is set to be launched this year.

The company is also making significant progress on the Al Naseem project, a distinguished residential community located on an area of 328,000sqm, with stunning waterfront and city waterway views.

Opening soon will be Hadiqat Al Diyar, a 32,800sqm outdoor park and recreational area, having more than 200 parking spaces.

Souq Al Baraha, a destination with ready-to-rent retail units featuring a design that combines traditional architectural elements with modern facilities, is due for official opening in the second quarter of 2021.

Diyar Al Muharraq is a multi-billion dollar project comprising 7 reclaimed islands with more than 40km of waterfront with sandy beaches.
