Moving garages to one area will lead to congestion, competition

Owners and workers of vehicle repair garages in Shuwaikh Industrial Area are worried that implementation of the directives given by the Council of Ministers, to find alternative sites for garages and shops in the Eastern Industrial Area in Shuwaikh, will only increase congestion in one area and lead to stiff competition that could see many shops closing down and workers being left without a livelihood.

Workers fear that stiff competition will result in workshops offering low repair costs in the hope of securing jobs, but this would ultimately make many shops unprofitable and owners would have to shut them down and terminate their workers.

The Shuwaikh Industrial Area is the most preferred place for vehicle owners, not only because spare parts of all kinds are available in one area, but also because of the presence of skilled technicians.
