Bahrain completes construction of new exit to Zayed Town
The opening of the new exit to Zayed Town will be followed by the opening of a single entrance point in mid-September this year
Bahrain’s Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning has announced that it has completed the construction of a new exit to Zayed Town.
Work on the $1m (BHD393,000) project commenced in June 2017 and covers the construction of new exit and entrance points to Zayed Town from Sheikh Salman Highway, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported.
Quoting Essam bin Abdullah Khalaf, Minister of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning, BNA said that the project was carried out to address the problem of traffic congestion along new housing areas.
Khalaf added that the opening of the new exit to Zayed Town will be followed by the opening of a single entrance point in mid-September this year. He further pointed out that the new exit coincides with the expansion of the lane headed to Shaikh Salman Highway, near the Ministry of Labour.
According to BNA, the two projects, in addition to the Educational District Exit Project, are expected to help improve traffic flow along Isa Town Gate Interchange and reduce congestion at peak hours.
