Kuwait’s Minister of Public Works Dr. Jenan Ramadan clinched a deal on Wednesday worth nearly KD109 million (US$356 million) for infrastructure work in a blossoming southern residential area. The project is significant since it links Kuwait’s AlMutlaa city with other adjacent areas where traffic volume can reach up to 70 percent, Ramadan, who is also Minister of State for Housing, told the press.
The deal is part of a series of similar projects that aim to prop up a national strategy for broad development, all of which are running on schedule, the minister revealed. The project mainly entails adding more driving lanes to roads by the entrance to Al-Mutlaa city, according to the Public Authority for Roads and Transportation’s Acting Director General Suha Ashkanani. It also deals with the construction of electrical networks, traffic signs, pedestrian bridges, in addition to other utilities, added the official.
