Kuwait to spend $309m on road development

The Kuwait government is set to spend around KD94 million ($309 million) for development of roads and other key infrastructures in South Surra neighbourhood of the capital city, said a report.

The project, being implemented by the Ministry of Public Works, involves construction and maintenance of roads and overpasses in areas within the vicinity of Sheikh Jaber Hospital and parts of the 6th Ring Road, reported the state news agency Kuna.

Two contracts linked to the consultancy agreement and implementation of the project would be submitted to the Minister of Public Works Abdulrahman Al Mutawa, it added.

Meanwhile, in another development, Al Mutawa has signed a consulting agreement for designing, construction, and maintenance of overhead intersections and U-turns on Al Nuwaisib road.

The agreement includes rehabilitating the existing road, cancelling all 33 U-turns besides providing the suitable multi-storey intersections all over the road and the needed intersections for entrances and exits of the new cities, according to Kuna.

The agreement also includes developing 43-km-long roads, nine multi-storey intersections, an overhead U-turn bridge that connects Al Wafra road to Al Nuwaisib road (intersection no.5); in addition to 4 bridges for camel crossing, said the report.

Nuwaisib road is extended from intersection no. 91 (Al-Dubaiya Bridge), to the exit of Al-Nuwaisib area that is close to the border of Saudi Arabia, it added.
