KUWAIT, Nov 16 (KUNA) -- Several roads will be closed just before midnight on Saturday amid tight security aimed at ensuring the arrival of incoming Africa-Arab Summit delegates, said a senior security official.
"The Traffic Department will be closing Sabhan route, starting from the Seventh Ring Road en route to each of King Faisal and Riyadh motorways (opposite the area of Yarmouk)," said Director of Public Affairs and Moral Guidance and Acting Director of Security Media Col Adel Al-Hashash.
These measures will come into effect as of 11:30 pm this evening, and drivers were advised to use Sheikh Zayed motorway instead.
For those intending to exit Kuwait International Airport, Al-Hashash suggested using Ghazali Road, while those intending to head to the airport were advised to use either of Sheikh Zayed, the Sixth Ring Road or Ghazali motorways.
As for the official welcoming schedule of the guests, he said that on Sunday timings would be between 5:30 pm and 7:00 pm, with two periods set for Monday, in the morning (10:00 am-1:00 pm) and the evening (5:30 pm-7:00 pm).
The measures are being implemented according to the instructions of the Deputy Prime Minister and interior Minister Sheikh Mohammad Khaled al-Hamad al-Sabah, which have been decided upon in response to strategies and plans made in advance for the success of the mammoth international event, he added.
Al-Hashash urged the public to cooperate with security personnel on the success of the event which, he said, is of huge significance to the nation. (end) hmd.sd KUNA 161702 Nov 13NNNN
