The ongoing expansion of mataf - the circumambulation area around the Holy Kaaba, would be completed before this year's Haj, said Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, head of the Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques Wednesday.

Haram Expansion

Inspecting the Haram expansion project here, he said thousands of pilgrims would be able to use the expanded mataf during the upcoming Haj season, according to Arab News.

"Most of the work would be completed before Ramadan in preparation for the peak Umrah season," he said.

Al-Sudais said the third phase of the mataf expansion was progressing well and would increase its capacity to 105,000 pilgrims an hour. There would be no obstacles in the mataf area, which would be expanded and will have modern facilities.

He said officials were doing their best to ensure that pilgrims are provided with excellent services.

The completed areas of the Haram expansion project, including the new building, would be opened to worshippers to reduce congestion caused by work on the mataf, he said.
