ManamaThe Capital has hailed approval of the master plan for the first phase of the Manama-Muharraq Water Front Project. 

The project was approved by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister.

Shaikh Hisham bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa, Governor of the Capital Governorate said, “The project translates the vision and guidance of the wise leadership towards establishing sustainable urban development projects on the ground to reflect the quality of life as an essential indicator of the prosperity of cities.”

“Further, the implications of this project will enhance the status of the capital among other regions in the Kingdom. This comes in line with the Government’s efforts to promote the concept of comprehensive human development and the harmony of the project with the Strategic Plan of the 2030 vision.”

The Chairman of the Board of the Capital Municipal Council, Eng. Mohammed Ali Al Khozai  further added, “This pioneering project, which includes tracks for walking, running, cycling, open green spaces, tourism and leisure facilities and restaurants, will be one of the most important projects in the Kingdom.”

“The Board of Directors of the Municipality and its members appreciate this project, which will be a blessing for citizens and residents, especially with the shortage of land in the capital. Such projects will meet the recreational, tourism and environmental needs of the public, “ said Eng. Mohammed Ali Al Khozai.

A detailed proposal to develop a 14km waterfront section between Juffair and the King Faisal Corniche is also contained within the master-plan.
