The area around the Nabawi Mosque in Medina is undergoing infrastructure improvements

Construction companies from Malaysia are aiming to obtain tenders for development projects in the Saudi Arabian holy cities of Mecca and Medina, according to Malaysia’s Consul General in Jeddah, Mohd Khalid Abdul Razak.

He said that the firms are eying opportunities involving infrastructure projects around the Grand Mosque in Mecca and the Nabawi Mosque in Medina, namely roads, bridges and other projects including mosque extensions.

The developments are planned to ease congestion during the haj and will be able to cater to four million haj pilgrims compared to between one to two million currently.

“I think this is a good chance for Malaysian contractors to show off their abilities,” the consul general was quoted as saying by Bernama news agency.

The projects should be completed in about two years and will demolish 23 hotels but make way for 21 new hotels which are under construction.
