Bahrain’s streets to be beautified under new programme

Bahrain’s main streets and intersections are to be beautified with plants and other changes under a Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning programme.

Adding green surfaces across the Kingdom is now seen as an essential requirement for preserving the balance of the environment and giving a positive impression to tourists.

Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the Ministerial Committee for Development and Infrastructure Projects, Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa has told the ministry to grow local plants that can adapt to the weather, and to continue planting palm trees.

He made the comments while visiting the Muharraq Grand Park, a 91,000 sq m garden, which has open green spaces, children’s play areas, walkways and facilities for people with special needs.

The development project will also see the fountains and green areas around the Adhari intersection improved.

The news comes after the Bahrain Trust Foundation launched a project set to transform Bahrain’s streets into social spaces.

The campaign, dubbed “Bringing Life to the Alley”, will see streets painted in bright colours and libraries and educational games will be added to them.
