Mott MacDonald is supervising construction of major infrastructure works on Bahrain’s Al Madina Al Shamaliya Islands 10, 11 and 12 on behalf of the country’s Ministry of Housing.
The scope of the works includes site grading, highways, storm water drainage, electrical, potable water, sewage and irrigation networks, telecommunication ducting and roadside landscaping. Two vehicular bridges connecting Islands 9 and 10 will also be built, as well as one vehicular bridge and one pedestrian bridge connecting Islands 11 and 12.
Simon Crossdale, Mott MacDonald’s project manager, said: “This commission builds on our existing excellent relationship with the Ministry of Housing. We also have teams established and working on other major projects in the country, including the Bahrain Affordable Housing public-private partnership project at Al Luwzi and Al Madina Al Shamaliya Islands 13 and 14 (East) and the Al Madina Al Shamaliya Island 14 (West) housing packages supervision.”
Mott MacDonald will supervise the infrastructure and utilities contractor, as well as the bridges contractor, during both the construction and defects liability periods.
