Since 2018, Ashghal has launched a package of contractual enhancements for infrastructure projects in citizens' subdivisions and existing areas, with the aim of streamlining the implementation of works and reducing their impact on the daily life of residents, while achieving quick responses to their demands and suggestions.
One of these contractual enhancements is dividing the work of each roads and infrastructure project into several geographical areas (zoning), in order minimize the negative effects of construction works, instead of carrying out works in all of the project area simultaneously, which increases the period of local road projects.
Enhanced contracts include the appointment of public relations officers to coordinate with the residents regarding any works that may affect their daily lives, such as traffic diversion, drainage connections, etc.
