Category: Kuwait Local News

The Ministry of Public Works announced yesterday the partial opening of one of the largest elevated road projects in the world, the Jahra Road Development Project. The opening, which commences at the intersection of Jahra Road with Al-Jahez Street, and until just after the United Nations Roundabout, will significantly ease the flow of traffic in that area.

The partial opening will result in road users having a greater ease in movement.

The total distance of the opening extends 4km and is accessible by ramps in both directions, drivers will be able to bypass the UN roundabout and the hospital road. Work is ongoing on the remaining sections of the project.

This mega project involves the construction of 17.7 km of viaducts (7.3 km of mainline Jahra Road, 2.4 km of bridges on linked roads and 8.0 km of ramps), including a trough at the 2nd Ring Road intersection, 10 pedestrian bridges, and service roads.

The Jahra Road project also includes major utility relocation and works, such as 3.5 km of storm water box culverts, 33 km of water lines, 8.0 km of sanitary sewer, 51 km of electric cables, and 12 km of communication ducts.
