$32m plan for new Bahrain storm drainage
Manama, January 20, 2011
Bahrain is to pump BD12 million ($31.8 million) into a water drainage project in a bid to cope with flash floods.
The scheme, set to be launched in the coming months, comes after the first downpour of the year caused chaos across the country.
“This project will be implemented in 80 to 90 locations across the country starting with Muharraq,” said Works Ministry director of sanitary engineering operation and maintenance directorate Ebrahim Al Hawaj.
He said the project is expected to be completed by the year-end and would help connect areas that are not part of Bahrain’s existing storm water drainage system.-TradeArabia News Service
