As everyone was celebrating International Tea Day yesterday, word got out on social media that the Muharraq Municipal Council has allowed Karak shops to remain open day and night.

Online users were quick to react with joy for being able to have a Karak even past midnight.

But it turns out that the joy was short-lived as a clarification came later on that the municipality had in fact allowed only one Karak shop to be open during the night.

Along with the proposal regarding opening of Karak shop at night, the municipality yesterday approved several other proposals aimed at enhancing the infrastructure and services within the Muharraq Governorate.

Event hall

This includes a proposal to construct a multi-storey event hall within the Muharraq Grand Park with aims to provide residents with a dedicated space for hosting weddings and other social events, reducing the financial burden associated with renting private venues.

Additionally, the proposal includes the construction of a multi-level car park to accommodate the increased demand generated by the event hall and park visitors.

Moreover, the council endorsed a proposal to transform the former Muharraq Municipality building into a public park and commercial complex.

This project will provide residents with a green space for recreation and leisure activities, while also offering convenient access to retail outlets.

The proposal emphasizes the preservation of the original building’s structure.

Pedestrian bridge

The council also gave the greenlight to a proposal to construct a pedestrian bridge and remove the existing roundabout on Shaikh Salman Avenue. This initiative aims to improve pedestrian safety and enhance traffic flow within the busy area.

Additionally, the council approved a proposal to erect a prominent flagpole displaying the Kingdom of Bahrain’s flag at the roundabout on Street 64 in Busaiteen. This project is intended to serve as a landmark for the Busiteen area and the Muharraq Governorate.
