Work on a $120 million (BD45 million) development project in Muharraq, Bahrain, was launched yesterday by Prime Minister Prince Khalifa Al Khalifa.

The project, which links Muharraq’s historic souq with a modern waterfront through a footbridge, will feature recreational, touristic, and commercial facilities, reported Gulf Daily News.

It will also feature a multi-storey car park, a hotel, a boat harbour, a walkway, a dining area, and a market that will replace the current location of Muharraq Post Office.

The project is aimed at boosting tourism in Muharraq.

PM Prince Al Khalifa said the government is keen to introduce new, similar projects that provide tourism, recreational and commercial alternatives for residents in Bahrain.
