The Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning in Bahrain has announced that it has commenced construction work on a road project in Zayed Town.

The development involves the construction of new entrance and exit points to Zayed Town from Shaikh Salman Highway, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported.

The ministry said that it is undertaking the project to ease traffic congestion along new housing areas and across the roads network in the country.

According to the ministry, the new entrance and exit points will allow traffic heading for Riffa to bypass the Isa Town Gate traffic signal, and will ease congestion at Salmabad Interchange.

Essam bin Abdullah Khalaf, Minister of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning, revealed that civil works involved in the project worth $692,000 (BHD261,000) were awarded to National Excavation, while asphalt paving works worth $281,000 (BHD 106,000) were awarded to United Gulf.

Meanwhile, the installation of the iron fence as part of traffic safety was awarded to Al Afoo Company at the cost of $69,000 (BHD26,000).

The project includes levelling works, protecting existing services, implementing ground channels for present and future usage, implementing a storm-water drainage network in low areas, and implementing two reclamation layers, paving works, signage, and lighting.
