The Minister of Construction and Housing, Mohamed Sahib al-Daraji [Mohammed Al-Deraji], has laid the foundation stone for the new AlGriat (Jawadain) suspension bridge project in Baghdad.
The bridge will connect the holy city of Kadhimiya with AlGriat across the Tigris River.
The Minister said that the project also includes setting up entertainment areas in the central region of the Tigris River, consisting of three floors, including restaurants and markets.
Designs were provided by the German company Dorsch Gruppe.
