The kingdom of Bahrain consists of 4 main islands. The capital city, Manama is located on the north eastern corner of the country. Although all the villages and towns in Bahrain are connected by well-built roads, the same does not hold true for its capital. A main hub in the country’s network of roads, the roads of the city is being revamped to meet the huge volume of traffic that uses it. The sudden spurt in in the capital’s population including the huge volume of tourists has a tendency to hold up traffic on the roads within the city. The newly constructed roads are aimed at easing this situation in Manama.
