Authorities have revealed that the work towards revamping the Jidhafs Central Market is progressing well. The total number of shops in the market, which is one of the largest in the Kingdom, will be as high as 85. Work is expected to take place in a 1660-square meter area.
The Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning and Capital Municipal are working hard to develop the market to meet the demands made by the citizens. Officials are mulling over the possibility of introducing a livestock market in Sitra area near Bandar Al Dar.
Once built, the market would be under strict supervision from the government to ensure no violations are committed, given the health and hygiene sensitivity of such a market, the authorities added.
