He said the idea was to give each highway, avenue and road included in the scheme its own distinctive design, the Gulf Daily News reports.

“A new beautification goal has to be set and with it major makeovers have to come,” he said.

“Every highway, avenue and road will have its own distinctive design and will see certain trees and flowers that will not be repeated within a certain distance.

“Bahrain is the only country in the region with a seed distribution machine that makes outdoor planting easier and cleaner and that technology will be vital in our plan, which we will now start working on.”

He was speaking as he toured Adhari Plantation Nurseries Centre with assistant under-secretary for resources and information Shaikh Nasser bin Mohammed Al Khalifa.

Al Salah said farmers could be helped with new gardening machinery and techniques.

“We can provide assistance and machinery to farmers, besides support to increase production, marketing and other support services in line with advancements available in the market or those used at the moment for governmental work.”
