Three-hour cleanup makes Corniche gleaming again

The Doha Corniche was cleaned up within a “record time” of three hours after the grand Qatar National Day celebrations, the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) has said on Twitter. The work was carried out by the General Cleanliness Department of the MME.

In a statement, the ministry said some 781 workers, drivers and supervisors were involved in the Doha Corniche cleanup drive. Also, 47 specialised equipment were deployed for the work.

Safar Mubarak al-Shafi, director of the department, stressed that they exerted great efforts to restore the cleanliness of the areas where National Day celebrations were held. This included the removal of garbage and all types of items left behind by the revellers, including paper and plastic, from such places. The cleanup drive covered the Darb Al Saai celebration venue in addition to the Corniche, where close co-ordination with the Traffic Department and Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya) facilitated the process.
