His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa last night opened the biggest residential town in Bahrain - the Northern Town - in the presence of HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa and HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier.

He announced that the promising milestone would be named “Salman Town”, in tribute to HRH the Crown Prince for his dedicated efforts and outstanding contribution to the nation’s progress and prosperity, reported BNA.

The new housing town would boast all major amenities including health, educational, religious and sport and transportation facilities in addition to modern road network and developed infrastructure for its more than 90,000 residents.

HM the King was saluted by school students on his arrival at the site of the ceremony. He was also welcomed by Housing Minister Basim bin Yacoub Al-Hamer and Northern Governor Ali Abdulhussein Al Asfoor.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, HM the King said he was delighted to launch the landmark model Northern Town, taking pride in Bahrain’s successive development achievements.

“By good fortune, the opening of this modern milestone comes as part of a massive urban and civilizational stride that meets the needs of all regions and consolidates the standing of each governorate to play its role in supporting the national economy for Bahrain to be a model of modernism and development”, he remarked.

He lauded the Bahraini nationals for their crucial contribution to the landmark march of development, hailing citizens’ enlightened thinking and firm belief in their ability to brave all challenges and seize all opportunities for positive change – all for the sake of his nation’s progress and prosperity.

“These lofty qualities, which long marked the people of Bahrain since olden times, is now leading them towards more security and stability”, said HM the King, commending all enterprises for supporting the completion of the project – adding that the Northern Town would rank among the cities of the future. At the end of the ceremony HM the King handed over the first two units to eligible recipients.

In his address, Al Hamer paid tribute to HM the King for patronizing the inauguration of the landmark development. The housing minister hailed the string of remarkable achievements and outstanding strides in the prosperous era.

Al Hamer cited the royal order to construct 40,000 units, describing the move as a quantum in the housing momentum which spans up to 60 years, during which towns and blocs were construction countrywide.

He underlined various stages in construction the model town, ever since HRH the Crown Prince laid the foundation stone, including reclamations, engineering blueprints in cooperation with the French Urban Authority, reported BNA.

He said work on more than 3,000 housing units had already been completed, pointing out that the Northern Town would have eventually the capacity to accommodate more than 90,000 people.

The Northern Town features all amenities, including health, educational, religious and sport and transportation facilities and services, in addition to modern road network and developed infrastructure.
