A series of road improvement works are being planned for Iraq’s capital, Baghdad. A budget of US$162 million has been set for the work by the Iraqi Government.

The tender process for the work is due to open shortly. Road maintenance and widening work will be carried to existing road links out as well as other general road improvements. Three new bridges will be constructed will three of the city’s important road links will be upgraded.

The client for the works will be the Baghdad Municipality. Iraq’s capital city desperately needs road improvements following years of neglect and the work is intended to help improve transport and commercial activity in Baghdad.
