Safari wins contract to maintain King Fahd Causeway

Five-year contract outlines a number of responsibilities including the provision of over 500 staff

Saudi-based construction and facilities management (FM) firm, Safari, has said that it has been awarded all three FM packages by the King Fahd Causeway Authority, following a detailed tender process.

A statement from the firm said that, as per the five-year contract, it will provide over 500 staff to maintain and enhance the aesthetics and functionality of the King Fahd Causeway.

Safari’s scope of work includes FM operations, maintenance and complete inspection works for King Fahd Causeway on both sides, including roadworks, protective rails, lighting fixtures and all related accessories, backfilling, the Aziziyah crossing and buildings and a total of 25 km of bridges. The scope also includes the facilities for collecting transit fees on the bridge and the surrounding area on the Saudi and Bahrain sides, and the roads leading to the entrances, as well as car insurance facilities on the Bahraini side.

“Safari is a responsible gatekeeper and caretaker at other important sites of value like Diriyah Gate as well as some of the top tier palaces and other important key locations across Saudi Arabia. We take our appointments at these locations as more than just a contract, but as a service to our country, and we take our role as temporary trustees very seriously,” said Ali Al Sagri, chief commercial officer of Safari.

The statement noted that Safari will provide an electrical power supply station for all the bridges, roads and the border island located north of the intersection of the Aziziyah bridge, as well as service stations in various locations. Also included in the firm’s scope are the marine works for inspection of all five bridges and the two truck detachment areas before entering the bridge on each side.

In addition, Safari will undertake the cleaning of buildings, landscaping, and general site coordination as well as pest control for the King Fahd Causeway and its facilities on both sides, the statement concluded.
