KUWAIT, May 28 (KUNA) -- The Ministry of Public Works announced the completion of about 79 percent of Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Causeway project.
The project is set to open by end of 2018, as the bridge will be the fourth longest in the world with both its Doha and Subbiyah links, said Assistant Undersecretary of Road Engineering at the ministry Ahmad Al-Hessan in a press statement on Sunday.
The bridge is part of Kuwait's development plan and will aim at reducing traffic and provide more road safety, he noted.
The project of KD 738,750 million cost will create a short cut between Kuwait City and Madinat Al-Hareer (Silk City), which is set to become a main investment area in Kuwait, he added.
The Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Causeway is one of the largest infrastructure projects to be constructed in the GCC region with an estimated construction value of approximately USD 3 billion. The Main Causeway across Kuwait Bay will link the Shuwaikh Port area on the south side of the bay to the Subbiyah New Town area to the north. The length of the main causeway is 36 km of which 27 km is a marine bridge structure.
The Doha Link crosses the south of Kuwait Bay and links Shuwaikh Port with the Doha motorway. The Doha link is 13 km in length and is predominantly a marine bridge structure. (end) am.ag
