In line with the Ruler of Sharjah’s directive to improve public -service buildings to enhance people’s life, the Directorate of Public Works (DPW) is planning several infrastructure projects.

They include extending the traffic court building, constructing a cattle market, a slaughterhouse in Al Zubair area and car parks in Al Majaz and Al Qassimya areas.

The number of parks will increase with new ones coming up in Al Hawiya and Al Rafia’h areas, at Al Nouf 3, Al Nouf 4, Al Souh 4 and Al Souh 6. Al Qara’n 2 will have Al Falah park while the Sharjah ladies’ park at Al Jurainah, Al Nakhilat park as well as Towi Al Saman and Towi Mahafiz parks will be completed. There will be illumination at Al Saja Park, Al Bedia, and Um Faneen. In addition, new administrative buildings will come up at Al Shahba and Al Qadisiya parks. New drainage networks are in the pipeline and the Central Souq will have maintenance work carried out.
