Photographs: River works in Rcif (click images for larger size)

The renovation project in Place Rcif started in 2009 and whereas most of the works have long since been completed, the part of the project that involved the opening up of the mostly covered Oued Boukhareb (river) have suffered serious delays. However last month coinciding with the visit of King Mohammed VI to Fez, many of the work barriers have been removed and the works seem to taken on additional vigour. This also coincides with the recommencement of, a little further on the river, the Place Lalla Yeddouna works.

The 2 photos below show the first uncovered part of the Boukhareb river in Pace Rcif, with a new bridge over to Mosque and the river continuing under Quantrat Tarrafine. There is also a new fountain just before the new bridge.

The photos below show the area between the 2 old bridges of Quantrat Tarrafine and Quantrat Khrachfiyine. On the far left of the 1st pic you can just about see the new steps which will act as the entry point to the new river path.
