Kuwait's Sheikh Jaber causeway to open by 2018-end

Kuwait said nearly 84 per cent of the work on its ambitious $3-billion Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Al Sabah Causeway project (also known as The Al Sabbiya bridge) has been completed and the 36-km-long engineering marvel will be ready by the end of 2018, said a report.

Sheikh Jaber Bridge, which will link Kuwait City with Al Sabbiya, is one of the country's biggest projects and a giant stride in its development strategy, reported state news agency Kuna, citing Minister of Public Works Abdulrahman Al Mutawaa.

It shortens the distance between the capital and the town on the other side of the bay, from 104 km to 36 km, said Al Mutawaa.

Once ready, the motorists will be able to cross the distance in flat 30 minutes, instead of the 90 minutes on the long land route, stated the Kuna report, citing the minister.

On its other ongoing infrastructure projects, Al Mutawaa said work was progressing well on the Jamal Abdulnasser Road with nearly 86 per cent of the project getting ready and Al Jahraa Road work nearing 94 per cent completion, it added.
