The Ministry of Interior on Monday gave guidelines to motorists on how to avert traffic congestions by using alternative road, after closing the key Al-Ghazali road. It said in a statement that part of Al-Ghazali road had to be shut down with onset of completing Al-Jahraa road project as well as Al-Ghazali road. As a result, traffic had to be diverted to Al-Jahraa side road leading to Shuwaikh port.
The ministry listed a number of roads that could be used to stay away from the jam. Truckers are banned from driving from 6 am to 4 pm from Sundays to Thursdays. Kuwait witnessed unprecedented traffic congestion yesterday due to the construction works and the required measures.
