Work will soon begin on major road development projects aimed at transforming the kingdom’s highways and streets to free traffic flows, a report said, citing a senior minister.

Essam bin Abdulla Khalaf from Minister of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning presented an overview of a number of the highways and main streets development projects, including Al Fateh Street, to His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa during a meeting held at the Qudaibiya Palace, reported BNA.

HRH Prime Minister stressed the significance of developing the streets as per highest global standards to ensure a smooth traffic flow taking into account the future investment projects.

The projects being planned include an underpass at the Gulf Hotel intersection and an overpass for traffic approaching from the north of Al-Fateh Street in the direction of Prince Saud Al Faisal Street.

The development plan also comprises increasing the number of lanes to four on each sides, as well as constructing a U-shape course at the Al-Fateh Street and Tarafa Al-Abid intersection, said the BNA report.

According to Tradearabia, HRH Prime Minister was later briefed by Khalaf on the ministry’s operational procedures for Al Fateh Street development project, as well as the preliminary procedures, hiring contractors and consulting companies and preparing tender documents for the implementation of the project.

The detailed designs and tender documents have been completed in conformity with the directives of HRH Prime Minister on the implementation of the project, added Khalaf.
