(MENAFN - Arab News) The jeddah municipality has confirmed that car junkyards will be relocated outside of jeddah by 2015 following the successful relocation of car workshops to usfan.

mohammed al-buqami jeddah municipality spokesman said residents in nearby neighborhoods had frequently complained of a continued state of chaos in these areas.

'the municipality has sent notifications to store owners to begin relocation procedures" al-buqami told arab news. 'these stores will be out of town by early next year."

residents had also complained of the health and environmental hazards posed by such stores.

'the smell of fuel and oil is a source of permanent annoyance to residents not to mention the noise pollution we suffer in the middle of the night" said ibrahim ali a resident.

residents also fear the negative effects of the accumulation of iron-based parts in the middle of the street.

'why isn't the municipality doing anything about this issue" asked muhammad sultan another resident. 'the municipality had repeatedly announced plans to relocate the junkyard to city outskirts."

visitors to the briman area east of the highway have criticized the state of anarchy and lack of organization at the junkyard where they say locating spare parts becomes a hopeless and tedious process.



said zahrani a local resident told arab news that workers routinely tell shoppers to find the parts themselves.

'alternatively these workers take the buyers on a tour between piles of oiled and dusty iron remains" he said. 'stores in quwaiza are much more organized and structured."

faisal jomaa another saudi citizen expressed fears that these sites would soon become a black market scene.

'some people sell spare parts that they had previously stolen" he said. 'many stores dismantle vehicles without reporting their car plates to traffic authorities."

a worker in briman however said most store workers refuse to deal with inauthentic sellers.

'these people try to sell parts at lower prices that do not exceed sr300 to sr400" said mohammed iman.

'the infrastructure in briman is also at risk because car containers continuously pass through this area" said mosab al-omari. 'the asphalt in the area's streets will undoubtedly crumble soon."
