Bahrain steps up infrastructure work
Manama, April 25, 2011
Government-funded infrastructure projects have boomed over the last three months in Bahrain, said a senior government official.
The Works Ministry has awarded or invited bids for 24 projects since January, said Works Minister Essam Khalaf, who submitted a memorandum updating schemes, as part of a package worth BD35 million ($92.83 million).
The figures were released as HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa chaired the weekly Cabinet meeting at Gudaibiya Palace.
The drive follows the Premier's directives to step up government-funded projects in a bid to help revitalise the economy.
HRH the Premier instructed officials to ensure that infrastructure schemes benefit most contractors.
The session also discussed a national project to revamp the network of sewage services.
The ministry submitted a study in this regard, surveying Bahrain's projected need until 2030. The project spotlights, particularly, the network of sewage water, recycling plants, groundwater and rainwater.
The session approved plans to build more used water recycling plants to meet needs and cope with demographic, economic and industrial trends.
Under the scheme, Tubli water treatment plant will be upgraded and five others will be constructed in Muharraq, Northern Town, South Alba and Northern Sitra. – TradeArabia News Service
