The last concrete block has been installed in the massive Jaber Causeway project (Subbiya Spur), the fourth-longest sea bridge of its kind in the world.
“Completing bridge according to schedule is considered a major achievement, as the milestone will link the center and north areas and transform Kuwait into a financial and commercial center”, said Commerce and Industry Minister, acting Public Works Minister and State Minister for Municipal Affairs Khalid Al-Roudhan.
Roudhan appreciated the efforts of all ministers concerned with the project including the public works minister,
Director of the Public Authority for Roads and Land Transport Ahmad Al-Husain and engineers who are working on the project, which runs 36 km above water. Husan said the last piece of the upper body of the bridge was installed. He thanked HH the Amir for his instructions and care of development projects in Kuwait, and hoped the project will be completed by the end of the year.
Kuwait has drawn up an ambitious plan to improve the infrastructure of ninety roads and bridges until the end of 2025, estimated to cost KD 8 billion for a total of 16 projects.
Director of Jaber Causeway Mai Al-Musad said the last prefab concrete piece was installed, and with it Kuwait City is linked with Subbiya, and the travel distance has been reduced from 104 km to only 36 km.
She said work has been ongoing since 2015 to produce the blocks and store them in the prefabrication yard, then install them during the scheduled period. She added the project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
