Bahrain Plans New Recreational Destination

Bahrain’s Prime Minister His Royal Highness Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa has reviewed a plan to develop the area between the Shaikh Isa and Shaikh Hamad causeways to make it a recreational facility for the citizens and build a tourist resort.

Inspecting development projects in the Muharraq area of the kingdom, HRH Premier said: “Our ultimate goal is to improve the living conditions of our citizens, and enhance the services provided for them.”

HRH Premier tasked the Ministerial Committee for Urbanization and Infrastructure to study the facility’s designs and implementation time frame, according to reports.

He directed officials to develop the area and rehabilitate it as a recreational destination for the citizens and residents and build a family tourism facility, given its unique location. The project should include facilities that enable visitors to rest and practice their hobbies, he instructed.

The Prime Minister was briefed by the Deputy Premier and chairman of the Ministerial Committee for Urbanization and Infrastructure, Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, on the government’s plan to revamp the area.
