Bahrain’s Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Minister, HE Essam bin Abdulla Khalaf, inspected progress of the ongoing work on a fishermen’s jetty during a visit to the kingdom’s Duraz region.
The development works cover an area of 350m2 out of the 2.4ha allotted for the project, according to the state-run Bahrain News Agency.
The project, which was launched on 23 October, 2019, has hit the 10% completion milestone. The project is expected to be completed within six months.
Once completed, it will feature a resthouse for fishermen, a coastguard office, a fish market, an administrative building, a parking lot, and other facilities.
In cooperation with Bahrain’s Council of Representatives, the Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs, and Urban Planning has begun work on multiple projects aimed at enhancing the standard of services provided to citizens.
HE Khalaf said: “Once completed, the Duraz jetty would be able up to serve up to 150 fishermen.”
The visit is in line with the directives issued by Bahrain’s Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander, and First Deputy Prime Minister, HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa.
Minister HE Khalaf was accompanied during the inspection by the representative of the second constituency in the Northern Governorate, Fatima Abbas, among other officials.
