Bahrain Metro Project to be Operational Within Two Years

Part of the Bahrain Metro Project will be operational within two years, according to government officials. Three ministries revealed their plans for the Bahrain Metro Project with the authorities last week during a meeting. The project would involve a partnership with private companies from Bahrain and overseas.

As per the Indian media report, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has been awarded the contract to build Bahrain Metro’s Phase-1 Project. The project entails the construction of a 20-station, almost 3030 kilometres network. DMRC will contrast four metro lines for Bahrain Metro in two phases as part of the project.

At the metro junction of Bab Al Bahrain and AI Farooq, two interchanges are also anticipated. The first metro line will run from Bahrain International Airport to Seef Mall, according to the DMRC. King Faisal Highway and Airport Avenue will be traversed. It will be 13 kilometres long, with 9 stations. Juffair to Issa town will be served by the second metro line.

There will be 11 stations along its 15.6- kilometre length. Together with other places, it will link Salmaniya, Zinj, and Tubli, according to sources. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health also shared its plans to complete the Qalali Health Center, expand Salmaniya Hospital, and build some clinics. These projects are going to cost BD1.5 billion, with funding from the state, Gulf financing, and other sources.
