02 : 38 PM - 14/01/2018
Manama, Jan. 14 (BNA): Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Minister Essam bin Abdulla Khalaf has inspected the expansion of Wali Al Ahad Highway, where a progress of 60% has been achieved.
Roads Construction Chief and Engineer in Charge of the Project, Fathi Al Farei, briefed the minister about the progress achieved in the project, which presently involves implementation of storm water drainage network on both directions, civil works, reclamation and laying of asphalt at some parts, construction of side pavements and construction of concrete wall along the central reservation.
The minister said that the biggest challenge that faced the ministry was the transfer and protection of services, especially high voltage ground cables. Most services were successfully transferred, which will positively affect progress in the project.
The BD1,969,265 project had been awarded to Eastern Asphalt & Concrete, and comprises expanding the highway to three lanes at each direction and revamping all intersections along it, in addition to re-constructing the highway infrastructure, constructing brick pavements, implementing a storm water drainage network, lighting, signage and protecting the existing services.
