Bahrain’s Ministry of Public Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning plans to construct car parking spaces near schools and mosques and speed breakers across the Northern governorate's 10th constituency in bid to ramp up road infrastructure assets in the area.

During his field visit to several areas of the governorates, undersecretary of the Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs & Urban Planning, Ahmed Abdul Aziz Al-Khayat, discussed complaints and suggestions raised by the residents in the area over roads and sanitary projects.

The visit followed Bahrain’s Minister of Works, Municipalities Affairs & Urban Planning, Essam bin Abdullah Khalaf’s orders to follow up on complaints and suggestions concerning several municipal councils, Bahrain News Agency reported. 

The country’s Member of Parliament, Basim Al-Malki (MP), and municipality member, Mohamed Al-Dhaen, in addition to roads and sanitary sector specialists and the members of the Municipal Coordination and Development Unit accompanied the undersecretary.

Earlier this week, the ministry completed construction work on the $28.7m (BHD10.8m) Shaikha Mooza bint Hamad Al Khalifa’s Primary and Secondary Girls’ School in Jau, which has been built by a Bahraini-Saudi Arabian joint venture of Al Moayed and Nasma Contracting and supported by the Saudi Fund for Development.
