Arab Times - - LOCAL -

The Min­is­ter of Public Works Ab­dul­rah­man Al-Mutawa said on Sun­day the devel­op­ment of Al-Jahra and Ja­mal Ab­dul Nasser two main roads will be com­pleted by the end of next year.

The min­is­ter made his re­marks, dur­ing a cer­e­mony for the in­au­gu­ra­tion of two tun­nels and a bridge in Al-Jahra road and Ja­mal Ab­dul Nasser projects, part of the over­all projects, and in co­op­er­a­tion with the min­istry of In­te­rior rep­re­sented by the Gen­eral Direc­torate of Traf­fic.

The min­is­ter noted that full com­ple­tion of Al-Jahra road project reached 93 per­cent, while Ab­dul Nasser road reached 85 per­cent.

In a state­ment af­ter the cer­e­mony, Al-Mutawa said his min­istry will con­tinue to be part of the in­au­gu­ra­tion process for road projects to fa­cil­i­tate traf­fic for the use of roads and to re­duce traf­fic con­ges­tion, es­pe­cially in these traf­fic den­sity ar­eas sur­round­ing the two projects.

The min­is­ter noted that these projects are vi­tal for sev­eral ser­vice in­sti­tu­tions and pop­u­lated ar­eas.

Al-Mutawa added that the com­ple­tion rate now in Al-Jahra reached 93 per­cent and that there is lit­tle to left.

As for Ja­mal Ab­del-Nasser’s project, it reached 85 per­cent and both projects will be com­pleted by the end of next year.

Al-Mutawa thanked cit­i­zens and res­i­dents in the ar­eas near the two projects for their un­der­stand­ing dur­ing this pe­riod, es­pe­cially dur­ing the closure of other roads and the open­ing of some al­ter­na­tive routes that may have caused some in­con­ve­nience to some of those who use these roads.

Al-Mutawa pointed also to the com­ple­tion of sev­eral projects im­ple­mented by the Min­istry of Public Works dur­ing the sum­mer, such as the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion build­ing project, the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion build­ing project, the build­ing of the In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, the Kuwait In­sti­tute for Ju­di­cial Stud­ies build­ing and many road main­te­nance projects around the coun­try.
