Deputy Prime Minister and chairman of the Ministerial Committee for Development and Infrastructure Projects, Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, has directed the kingdom’s Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs, and Urban Planning to develop a work programme for the landscaping and beautification of streets and intersections.

According to Al Khalifa, such projects are aimed at increasing and taking care of green spaces in the kingdom, while landscaping helps curb road accidents.

He added that the beautification and afforestation works should be carried out alongside other projects, the Bahrain News Agency reported.

The Deputy PM toured across various streets and main intersections, and was accompanied by minister of works, municipalities affairs, and urban planning.

Al Khalifa also directed the ministry to prepare a guide book featuring regulations and criteria for such projects in accordance with the location. He said that the ministry should take advice from experts to develop national competencies in the field of agricultural engineering and design.

The ministry was also directed to grow local or imported sustainable plants that adapt to the local weather conditions.

Al Khalifa was also briefed on the Muharraq Grand Park Phase 2 and Al Janabiya Intersection landscaping projects, during the site tour.
