SSH crowned winner of the MENA Road Infrastructure Project of the Year at the 2022 MEED Project Awards
SSH is proud to announce that the Tubli Bay Water Improvement (New Alba Bridge) project in Bahrain was crowned winner of the MENA Road Infrastructure Project of the Year at this year’s MEED Project Awards, in association with Mashreq. The MEED Awards are intended for project teams that merit recognition for their high-calibre work, adherence to schedule, and client satisfaction in a safe and healthy work environment.
This project is one of three projects designed and supervised by SSH to achieve the same goals. The other two projects are Ma’ameer Canal Widening and Ma’ameer Culvert Extensions and Widening. These projects are part of a larger scheme of work managed by the Ministry of Works (MOW) to improve the environmental and flushing conditions of Tubli Bay.
As part of the larger program, this project enhanced regular seawater flushing circulation between Ma’ameer Bay and Tubli Bay, which improves the water quality and preserves the distinctive ecological system. Due to its positive short- and long-term effects on the environment and people, the improvement in marine life and seawater cleansing can be regarded as a key engineering accomplishment.
The Tubli Bay project improved water quality through water conservation, increased accessibility to an industrial region, which encouraged investors to capitalise there, and increased job creation because of the new access to the industrial area. The project also enhanced the wildlife habitat in an area designated as a wildlife natural reserve zone for migrating birds like flamingos.
A special thanks to the SSH infrastructure team for their continuous dedication that led to this award, and congratulations to all the winners involved!
