Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Public Works for roads sectors Eng. Ahmad Al-Hassan said on Monday that the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad bridge project includes two artificial islands for investment and government buildings, and that one of them will contain a marina.

In an interview with daily Al-Anbaa, Al-Hassan said that the first section of the project is the South Island which is located west of Kuwait City, pointing out that work in this project is completed, adding that work to improving the soil is now underway which will be allocated for investments.

He said that the other island is 74 percent near completion and is located near the city of Subbiya on the same path of the project, saying it will be designed for administrative buildings and a number of government agencies and a marina in the future.

He said the bridge project is located in Kuwait Bay between Kuwait City and Subbiya which is almost 36 km long and is considered one of the largest projects in the field of transport and infrastructure in Kuwait and the region and one of the longest maritime bridges in the world.

He explained that the implementation of the project is within the framework of the integrated development plan of the State of Kuwait and will, when completed, contribute to the integration between the northern area of Kuwait City with the central and southern densely populated areas, and will shorten distance between Kuwait and the city of Subbiya from 104 km that takes about 90 minutes to 36 minutes and will provide a strategic way that supports the future development plans of the northern region.
