Massive development on Al Fateh Highway to begin soon

  • Bahrain News

An ambitious enterprise to develop Al Fateh Highway and ease heavy traffic will be launched in April, Minister of Works, Municipality Affairs and Urban Planning Esam bin Abdullah Khalaf has said.




The works, extending from Shaikh Hamad Causeway in the north to the Mina Salman intersection in the south, will also provide alternative options for the Juffair area.

The main works will include expanding Al Fateh Highway into four lanes in each direction with the construction of a three-lane tunnel each way at the intersection of Al Fateh Highway with Awal Road (The Gulf Hotel intersection) and the provision of a ground intersection controlled by traffic lights.

They will also feature the construction of an overpass with two lanes for traffic going from the north of Manama on Al Fateh Highway to Prince Saud Al Faisal Road in Juffair while the current intersection of Al Fateh Highway with Shaikh Duaij Road will be closed.

An upper bridge with two lanes of U-turns near the entrance to Al Fateh Corniche for traffic heading north will be constructed.
