Economy News _ Baghdad
Today, Tuesday, the technical advisor to the Prime Minister, Muhammad Sahib al-Darraji, revealed the details of the new Sadr City project, and set a date for the completion of its designs and the commencement of its implementation.
Al-Daraji said in an interview with the Iraqi News Agency, followed by "Al-Iqtisad News", that "the new Sadr City is one of the most important possible urban expansions in the city of Baghdad," pointing out that "there were attempts in 2010 to build a city (10 by 10), but it was not written for it." Success led to the loss of lands and the construction of irregularities and slums, which caused bad environmental, social and urban effects.
He added, "This project enjoys great importance from the government, especially from Prime Minister Muhammad Shia' al-Sudani, and that there is a special supreme committee headed by the prime minister to establish the Sadr City project, and there is an executive committee supervising the construction of Sadr City, and good stages have been reached now in terms of designs and others."
Al-Daraji pointed out that "the periodic meetings chaired by the Prime Minister and the continuous follow-up of the project have a clear impact on overcoming the obstacles facing the implementation of this city," stressing that "the designs will be completed in the tenth month or before, and the implementation of the infrastructure will begin during the current year."
He continued, "The location of the city will be between Al-Sadr City and the Al-Ma'mal area, that is, beyond Tariq neighborhood, and extends to the Al-Ma'mal area," explaining that "the design will be modern and compatible with the social nature of the region, and it will be an integrated city that includes commercial, educational and medical centers."
The advisor to the Prime Minister stated that "this city can accommodate about 500,000 people, up to 70,000 housing units, and it will be implemented in stages, and it is open to all Iraqi people, especially overcrowded areas, to remove overpopulation from some areas."
He pointed out that "the project will have good social effects, especially in improving the environment of the Baghdadi community by removing overcrowding," noting that "the distribution mechanism will be through a specific mechanism that the government will put in place and depend on its vision when the project is completed."
