According to reports from the Saudi General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, 90% of the construction and architectural work in the bishop in the courtyard, and 6 minarets in the Grand Mosque in the third Saudi expansion, has been completed.
The General Administration of Projects increased its work on the third Saudi expansion and the Grand Mosque in response to the severity of the Corona pandemic and the suspension period, according to the Agency for Projects and Engineering Studies.
In response, Eng. Muhammad Al-Waqdani, the Deputy General President for Projects and Engineering Studies, noted that building work is progressing at a rapid speed, with the completion rate of the two lighthouses at King Abdulaziz Gate reaching more than 88.5 percent.
He also stated that the agency profited from the low density of worshipers and pilgrims during the previous period, as well as by monitoring numerous projects at the same time, the most notable of which was the bishop’s work in the Mataf building.
Furthermore, he stated that the construction of the 6 beacons takes the total number of beacons to 19, demonstrating the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s concern for the Two Holy Mosques and their destinations, adding that these huge enormous extensions have not been seen in 1400 years.
