Bahrain waterfront project on track for Q3 opening

MANAMA, December 30, 2018

Work is progressing at a steady pace on the BD1.8-million ($4.74 million) Busaiteen Waterfront Development, a first-of-its-kind project in Bahrain making use of renewable energy, with over 25 per cent of the project already completed.

Designed in co-ordination with the Muharraq Municipal Council, the project will come up over a 43,000-sq-m area, featuring an open seafront, a public square (plaza), green spaces, family restrooms, facilities, restaurants, services and parking lots, said a statement from Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning.

This makes it an integrated recreational facility that would contribute to boosting internal tourism, and provide a new outlet for Bahraini families, it stated.

A strategic project for the development of marine coasts in the Muharraq governorate, the 2-km-long Busaiteen Waterfront is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2019, remarked Minister of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Essam bin Abdulla Khalaf.

He was speaking during a field visit to the project for inspection of the construction works there.

The implementation of the Busaiteen Waterfront Development project is in line with the directives of HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, he stated, adding that the ministry had been keen to complete all the executive procedures related to the project, in cooperation and coordination with government departments and the Muharraq Municipal Council.

"We attach great importance to constructing and developing coasts and waterfronts across the kingdom in order to provide integrated recreational services that meet the needs of the citizens, as part of efforts to boost urban development and tourism, in accordance with the requirement of the Strategic Vision 2030 and the National Strategic Master Plan for Bahrain," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
