KUWAIT: Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Roads and Trans­port Eng Ah­mad Al-Hosan said that 37% of Sev­enth Ring Road has been com­pleted. He said work is pro­gress­ing as sched­uled for the ben­e­fit of de­vel­op­ing and up­grad­ing the road net­work coun­try wide, which is wit­ness­ing an un­prece­dented move in qual­ity due to the ef­forts of all the work­ers who are do­ing their best to com­plete the road sys­tem and other in­fra­struc­ture up­grades.

Al-Hosan said in a state­ment that the project is one of the most im­por­tant projects be­ing ex­e­cuted by PART, as it will pro­vide links to Fa­ha­heel Road to the area near Kabd. It will stretch over a length of 21.8 Km and will in­clude seven in­ter­sec­tions. It also in­cludes a part of the re­gional road sys­tem that links Fa­ha­heel road, through Sev­enth Ring Road and all the way to Salmy Road cov­er­ing nearly 93 km. PART Di­rec­tor Gen­eral said the project will al­low traf­fic to flow freely without traf­fic sig­nals. The speed limit will also be in­creased to 120 km/h.

Al-Hosan said the street was de­signed with 3 lanes on each side with the pos­si­bil­ity of adding a fourth lane in the fu­ture. This fourth lane would be used as a wait­ing area for trucks and pedes­trian bridges. He said PART is keen on fol­low­ing the ex­e­cu­tion steps in the project and urges work­ers to in­crease their ef­forts so it can be com­pleted as sched­uled. This can be achieved through close fol­low ups, field vis­its and reg­u­lar re­ports from the ex­ec­u­tive team in­side the project to PART. The project team should also work on fac­ing any worker chal­lenges that may arise.
