Work resumes for third Saudi expansion of Grand Mosque

The Agency for Projects and Engineering at the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque has issued licenses for the remaining works of the third Saudi expansion of the Grand Mosque, Saudi Press Agency reported on Wednesday.

The agency said that the resumption of work includes the main gates, installation of artificial stone ceilings, completion of architectural arches overlooking the courtyard and other major works.

The agency discussed the plan, program of work and stages of implementing the remaining works after coordination and concerted efforts of the relevant authorities, while taking advantage of the significantly reduced number of pilgrims in the Holy Mosque.

The agency stressed the keenness of the government led by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman to complete projects related to all the Two Holy Mosques to provide all means of comfort to those who enter the Sacred House of God and to take the necessary preventive measures in cooperation with the competent authorities.
