A new fountain is to be built in Nijmeh Square as part of a project to refurbish Sidon, the third largest city in Lebanon.

Once finished, the fountain will stand 10 metres in height and will include other surrouning smaller fountains and a small waterfall.

The work is part of a host of major development projects designed to brighten up the southern coastal city, according to its mayor, Mohammad Saudi.

He said the start of 2014 would be welcomed with a noticeably refurbished Nijmeh Square.

“The project is one of many other major projects in the city implemented to develop infrastructure, in line with the highest standards,” Saudi said.

Other projects include the removal and dismantling of the Sidon waste dump, fully operating the solid waste management plant and sewage refinery, building a commercial port and constructing a museum for artifacts found in Sidon.

“We look forward to the day when Sidon reinstates its vibrant pioneering role at all levels. We hope that the city, the areas in its vicinity, and all other Lebanese regions enjoy security and stability as a first step for development and prosperity in this country," he said.
