The Municipality of Abu Salim has kick-started repair and infrastructure work after the long wait for action, due to outstanding issues with the company assigned to implement the target projects.

"In the neighborhood of Blousa, work is well underway to pave primary roads as well as side streets, in addition to developing the water and sanitation network, and improving storm-water retention by linking the pipelines directly to the valley," the Abu Salim Municipality said on Facebook.

The municipality indicated it is debating with the concerned companies to clear the backlog of infrastructure work in the Abu Salim district, noting that the step comes within its strategy to promote the well-being of its citizens.
