Expatriate health insurance policyholders working as labourers in the city of Muharraq in Bahrain are set to benefit from a new township development specially designed to house them.
According to the Gulf Daily News, up to 20,000 expat labourers will be offered accommodation in the Bahrain Investment Wharf Labour Accommodation in Hidd, which boasts a medical centre for all their expatriate healthcare needs.
The Bahrain $40 million (£67 million) development also contains markets, restaurants and a recreational centre, the news source reported.
It has been built in response to complaints from Bahraini citizens that nearby expatriate labourers can be noisy, drunk and lead to traffic congestion in residential areas.
The Muharraq Municipal Council will be launching a comprehensive study this weekend to look into the living conditions of thousands of expatriate workers in a bid to tackle the problems associated with large numbers of single men living in residential parts of the city.
Bahrain is currently the only Gulf Co-operation Council state not to employ a sponsorship system for foreign workers.
