Madinah governor inspects Sayed Al-Shuhada rehabilitation project

  • Prince Faisal also met residents and listened to their views and experiences of the neighborhood’s development

MADINAH: Madinah Gov. Prince Faisal bin Salman has stressed the importance of rehabilitating old neighborhoods and turning them into urban development projects that improve residential conditions while preserving the region’s historical importance and social fabric.
Prince Faisal, who is also the chairman of the Madinah Development Authority, was inspecting — in the presence of the authority’s CEO Mohammed Al-Blaihshi — projects being implemented by the authority to rehabilitate more than 5,000 residential buildings in the Sayed Al-Shuhada area, 80 percent of which have been completed.
These projects covered the neighborhoods located near the airport road, Talaat Al-Huboob, Mount Uhud and Sayed Al-Shuhada square.
“Sayed Al-Shuhada neighborhood is of great importance for Muslims as it is located near Mount Uhud and Rumah Mountain, an area that has witnessed the battle of Uhud and has the Sayed Al-Shuhada cemetery,” Prince Faisal said. “Developing this area is a Saudi experience that is distinct from similar international experiences because residents are staying home, while the external, traffic and service environment is improved,” he said.
Prince Faisal also met residents and listened to their views and experiences of the neighborhood’s development.
