Bahrain to build township for foreign workers

04 Apr 2010

(MENAFN) An official at Bahrain’s Municipalities and Agriculture Ministry said that a new township that will accommodate around 10,000 foreign workers who currently live in more than 100 labor camps is being planned in Bahrain, Reuters reported

The government has already identified land opposite the Ramez discount warehouse, East Riffa, as a potential location for the township, he said.

Councillors hope that housing all workers in one place will improve the lives of Bahraini residents, who have long complained about living next to makeshift labor accommodation.

The official claimed many Bahraini families were moving out of the area due to rising number of laborers living in their community, which he said had also led to an increase in crime and other problems.
