Sharjah’s government has approved AED150m ($41m) to fund projects proposed by the Public Works Department.

The proposed projects were in line with the goal to achieve emirate-wide sustainable development, according to Ali bin Shaheen al-Suwaidi, head of the Public Works Department in Sharjah.

The budget spans academic, sports and educational projects, according to a statement published by the Emirates News Agency (WAM).

Al-Suwaidi said 90 per cent of the emirate’s planned municipal development and service projects in 2015 were completed.
