Jahra, Ab­dul Nasser road projects to be com­pleted by end of next year: Min­is­ter

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The de­vel­op­ment of Al-Jahra and Ja­mal Ab­dul Nasser main roads will be com­pleted by the end of next year, Min­is­ter of Pub­lic Works Ab­dul­rah­man Al-Mu­tawa said on Sun­day. The min­is­ter made his re­marks dur­ing a cer­e­mony to in­au­gu­rate two tun­nels and a bridge in AlJahra and Ja­mal Ab­dul Nasser road projects, part of the over­all projects, and in co­op­er­a­tion with the Min­istry of In­te­rior, rep­re­sented by the Gen­eral Direc­torate of Traf­fic.

Al-Jahra road project is now 93 per­cent com­plete, while Ab­dul Nasser road is 85 per­cent com­plete, Mu­tawa said. The min­is­ter added that 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.

These projects are vi­tal for sev­eral ser­vice in­sti­tu­tions and pop­u­lated ar­eas, Mu­tawa noted, adding that both projects will be com­pleted by the end of next year. 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.

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. — KUNA
