Bahrain to start work on major highway in June.

Bahraini authorities said work on the Saar Road expansion project is set to begin this June.

The project, which involves major revamp of a 2.5-km-long stretch of Avenue 35 which runs past Saar Cinema and turning it into a four-lane highway, is likely to be completed by September next year.

The Saar Road, which currently has one lane in each direction, serves as an important link to Budaiya and all other villages north and south of it.

"This road is one of the most important in the Northern Governorate," said Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Ministry's roads design section chief Maha Hamada.

"The entire road will be upgraded to two lanes in both directions, which will help traffic flow,

she added.

The project includes seven bus stops, five traffic light intersections and a central reservation with a barrier.

The ministry officials said work was on to widen Saar Avenue and Janabiya Avenue, an expansion of Budaiya Highway and a road linking the Northern Town with Budaiya.

Other major projects for the Northern Governorate include a bridge linking the new Northern Town to the intersection of Budaiya Highway and Janabiya Highway, with work set to finish in the last quarter of this year, they added.-TradeArabia News Service
