Developing a Coherent and Diverse Transportation and Communications Strategy
Inadequate transportation options exacerbate traffic problems by causing delays and overcrowding. Furthermore, the current proposed development strategy will place an additional burden on the transportation network. It is, therefore, vital to have a multimodal transportation network that ensures safe, comfortable and efficient mobility as part of an integrated transportation system. This will improve efficiency, which will, in turn, increase foreign investment in Bahrain significantly.
A dedicated bus and train system along with marine transportation will support Bahrain's sustainable development and strengthen Manama's role as a vital hub in the region. A complete transportation strategy must include special programmes aimed at diversifying transportation.
