Bahraini road projects set to get underway
Work on Juffair ring road project already in progress
Two road projects in Bahrain are set to start work in the coming months, Gulf Daily News reports.
Plans for work to begin on the second phase of the Muharraq ring road project are reportedly in place, which will see the extension of the ring road from Dair village to Busaiteen. A fourth bridge and a multi-lane road in each direction linking Manama city to Northern Manama Causeway will also be built as part of the project.
The second project set to get underway is the Alba/Nuwaidrat intersections development project (Shaikh Jaber Al Ahmed Al Sabah Avenue). It includes the development of a three-layered intersection at Alba roundabout and replacement of the roundabout with traffic signals. A dual flyover bridge above Nuwaidrat intersection will also be built, while part of Shaikh Jaber Al Ahmed Al Sabah Avenue between Alba and Nuwaidrat intersections will be revamped. Further work will see changes to Avenue 15 in Ma'ameer Industrial Area, in addition to constructing a dual road to link Ma'ameer Industrial Area with King Hamad Avenue, south of Alba roundabout.
Meanwhile, work on the Juffair ring road project is already underway to ease traffic congestion and develop Al Fateh Highway intersections to improve traffic flow to and from Juffair.
