The Askar Coastline will be included in the third package of projects for development, the Ministry of Municipalities Affairs and Agriculture confirmed.

This comes in response to a proposal from the Southern Municipal Council for the comprehensive development and maintenance of the Askar walkway in the eighth constituency of the Southern Governorate.  

The development works in the coastline will be extensive, encompassing upgraded play areas, maintenance of solar panels, facility maintenance, and the provision of sports equipment, the ministry stated. 

As per the response, the existing play areas will be improved and expanded, the existing solar panels will be maintained to ensure continued energy efficiency, all existing facilities within the Askar walkway will be thoroughly upgraded, and additional sports equipment will be provided to encourage physical activity and recreation.  

It's worth noting that the Southern Municipal Council had previously approved a report proposing comprehensive development and maintenance for the Askar walkway.

The proposal aimed to repair the walkway surface, increase green spaces, maintain solar-powered lighting, and provide restrooms and washrooms. 

The existing surface will be repaired and some sections will be repaved with bricks. 

The project aims to expand green areas and improve landscaping throughout the walkway, existing solar-powered lighting will be maintained and the number of lampposts will be increased, and toilets and washing facilities will be added for public convenience.  

This project contributes to providing a safe path for pedestrians and athletes, reducing the need for them to walk near busy roads and minimizing potential risks.

The initiative aligns with the Ministry of Municipalities and Agriculture's focus on developing walkways, parks, and gardens, in line with Bahrain's Economic Vision 2030.

This vision aims to achieve the government's programme of developing services and facilities across all regions of the Kingdom.
