Bahrain minister inspects sites to construct 303 houses, 1402 units
The ministry aims to build 25,000 housing units as part of the Government Action Plan, and a royal order to build 40,000 units
Bahrain’s Housing Minister, Eng Bassim bin Yaqoob Al Hamar, has conducted a visit to inspect readiness measures in Salman City, including sites allocated to build 303 housing units, as well as 1402 flats, for which tenders have been completed in preparation to begin construction work.
He was also briefed about ongoing infrastructure work in the city, as well as other projects included in the future projects plan, according to the state-run Bahrain News Agency.
The ministry plans to launch the housing project as part of its efforts to provide 25,000 housing units included within the Government’s Action Plan, which stems from a royal order to build 40,000 housing units.
The ministry has given top priority to the directives of the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier, HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, to implement infrastructure plans in Salman City and the New Bahrain Cities projects.
The ministry is currently reviewing implementation of the procedural schemes for general plans approved for the cities. The government has focused on the New Bahrain Cities projects, in particular, in terms of building units and providing public services and infrastructure.
