Madinat Khalifa is located on the east coast of Bahrain, between Jaw Village to the south and Asker Village to the north. The scheme is mainly residential, comprising of villas and apartments. Other land uses include mixed use/commercial development, educational institutions, Mosques and utility buildings.
On street parking is provided throughout the residential area, together with villas providing off-street parking.In addition, parking will be permitted along the Service Roads, along the Boulevards and Avenues.
New bus services will provide high quality public transportation network through the scheme. All bus stops are proposed to be accessible from 300m walking distance anywhere within the scheme. It is likely the operation of these bus routes will use the traditional method of the bus following an assigned route and schedule.
Pedestrian crossing points and walkways are planned at all intersections and throughout the scheme. A network of cycle routes have also been implemented and where possible are segregated from heavily trafficked routes.
Overall the development seeks to be a pioneer for other developments in Bahrain, to encourage the use of Public transport together with walking and cycling and reduce the reliance on the use of cars and other motorised vehicles. The existing site is currently vacant with limited residential development and construction ongoing to the north of the site. Currently the development site is serviced by a network of temporary roads.
