Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi directed the implementation of the Clock Tower project in Kalba, at a height of 45m.
The tower will overlook 4 main roads, Buhairah, the government buildings and the flagpole.
This was aired on the “Direct Line” programme on Sharjah TV and Radio.
The tower, which is a landmark of Kalba, can be reached via a walkway and a ground tunnel, with elevators to reach its top.
It can also be seen from far away, day and night, and will not overlook residential homes, to maintain the privacy of families. Sheikh Sultan drew the tower himself, taking care of all issues to preserve the privacy of the people. A restaurant or cafe is expected to be set up at the top of the tower.
