These five projects, with a combined value of around SR288.27 million, cover development initiatives for municipal services, increasing quality of life, and doing just that. Projects to “humanise” the governorate are being carried out, according to the mayoralty.
The South Obhur coastal project will increase tourism in the Bride of the Red Sea by adding squares and recreational places, sand beaches, a bike route, a sea walkaway, green spaces, and parking lots, in addition to offering other profitable investment opportunities.
