The Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning have confirmed the implementation of the second phase of land reclamation for the fourth causeway project.
The project is a part of a package that includes the necessary land reclamation works for the extension road from Diyar Al-Muharraq towards Sayah and Busaiteen area to the Bahrain Bay to connect with North Manama causeway.
Ministry added that it will take a period of 12 months to complete from the date of commencement.
The project is considered a qualitative leap in reducing traffic congestion north of Muharraq Island, and the budget allocated for the project is BD 94 million.
It will consist of five traffic lanes in each direction; one extends east from Saya to Diyar Al Muharraq, and the other west linking Bahrain Harbor to the waterfront of Seef area.
