The Ministry of Works in Bahrain is nearing completion on its Sheikh Abdulla Avenue revamp project, with construction progress now at 75%.

The project, which extends from King Hamad Avenue to Bab Al Bahrain Avenue, is designed to primarily serve visitors to Manama, in addition to facilitating traffic in the area, roads projects and maintenance director, Sayed Bader Alawi, told Bahrain News Agency (BNA).

According to Alawi, completed activities include the removal of dilapidated asphalt layers and the implementation of a rainwater drainage network, as well as “ground channels for present and future usage”.  

Brick has reportedly been laid in, and pavements and signage works have been carried out.
