Bahrain to invest $312mn into new education facilities by 2030


All of the 42 projects will be environmental-friendly and specifications are already in place said the country’s Education Minister

18 new schools and 24 academic buildings for students will be built across Bahrain’s four governorates by 2030. The project is estimated to cost approximately US $312mn.

Education Minister Dr Majid Al Nuaimi revealed that designs for the new environmental-friendly educational complexes have been completed in co-ordination with the Works Ministry, according to a report by Gulf Daily News.

“The new schools will cover new areas and will increase existing school capacity. All of the 42 projects will be environmental-friendly and specifications are already in place. They include plans for natural lighting and new technologies for energy-saving lights and eliminating light pollution,” said Al Nuaimi.

In September 2022, Diyar Al Muharraq said it had completed secondary infrastructure works at Mozoon and, in early November 2022, Bahrain said it would launch tenders for construction of its metro project by Q1 2023.

As per the report, the Capital Governorate will see two schools and nine academic buildings constructed; the Muharraq Governorate will have five schools and seven academic buildings; the Southern Governorate will have three schools and four academic buildings, while the Northern Governo-rate will have eight schools and four academic buildings.

He said earlier that the new primary schools would be constructed on an area of 150,000sqm, mix primary intermediate schools on 180,000sqm, intermediate on 160,000sqm, mix-intermediate secondary on 20,000sqm and technical schools on 40,000sqm.

Construction work will also take into account anticipated future vertical or horizontal expansions, the report concluded.

In mid-November 2022, Four Seasons and Bayside Developments launched the Four Seasons Private Residences Bahrain Bay.
