The Muharraq central market, with three floors and four times bigger than the old market, will be reopened to the public by the end of this month.
According to Muharraq municipal council chairman Mohammed Al Sinan, the project has nearly been completed pending some ‘finishing touches’.
A hypermarket as well as over a hundred meat, fish and vegetable outlets will be featured in the revamped market on a total surface of 28000sqm.
In April, His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa had instructed to open Muharraq Central Market to the public before the end of the year. “The central market project is an important one. It will boost trade activity in the area and add convenience to the people as well as assist in job creation.
The market apart from being bigger has been designed with customer convenience in focus. An underground parking was built to ensure ample parking space.
“This market will be of great value to the people and will offer an excellent shopping experience,” he added. The first floor is set aside for outlets for vegetables, meat and fish. All shops have already been handed over.
Meanwhile, it was announced that a new central market is being planned in Hamad Town near roundabout 17. Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Minister Essam Khalaf confirmed earlier this month that designs for the project have been completed.
