An ambitious enterprise to develop Al Fateh Highway and ease heavy traffic will be launched in April, reported BNA.

The works, extending from Shaikh Hamad Causeway in the north to the Mina Salman intersection in the south, will also provide alternative options for the Juffair area, said the report citing Minister of Works, Municipality Affairs and Urban Planning Esam bin Abdullah Khalaf.

The main works will include expanding Al Fateh Highway into four lanes in each direction with the construction of a three-lane tunnel each way at the intersection of Al Fateh Highway with Awal Road (The Gulf Hotel intersection) and the provision of a ground intersection controlled by traffic lights, stated Al Khalaf.

The scope of work includes the construction of an overpass with two lanes for traffic going from the north of Manama on Al Fateh Highway to Prince Saud Al Faisal Road in Juffair.

An upper bridge with two lanes of U-turns near the entrance to Al Fateh Corniche for traffic heading north will also be constructed, it added.
