technical departments in the (Ya-Hussein Road) project allocated to

Najaf road. This road will be allocated only to the visitors coming on
foot, especially during the million visits in order to reduce the
crowds on the main road and allow the smooth movement of vehicles. "
He said: "There are several donors for the implementation of the road,
including the two holy shrines, and the Department of roads, bridges
in the Ministry of Housing and Construction, office of Karbala, and
the Department of the direct implementation in the province of
"Al-Abbas holy shrine sponsored (4 km) to be paved of
this project, starting from the Zubayliah check point down to the host
of Abu al Fadl al Abbas (peace be upon him)."
About the work in this project, Eng. Dia explained: "In the beginning,
mechanisms of Al-Abbas holy shrine opened the way to be ready for work
as a first stage, removing the constructions on the path of the road
after the approval of the owners to raise the assets of their own, and
then shoveling the ground adding the amounts of soil to reach the
level specified with commitment to the distance of separation from the
main road, then spreading the soil in the form of layers."
"A further phase has been added. It is the settlement of the shoulders
of the street on both sides left and right, with about (30) meters
length and the level (thickness) is different from (80) cm to (1,5) M,
to reach the required level."
better than wealth because it protects you while you have to
guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the
more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you
get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but
what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE
